Immediate Decision Making


On a daily basis, I make a ton of decisions. Some of them are important big picture decisions that impact many. These often require taking in a lot of information, synthesizing it over time and making a carefully crafted decision.

Some, however, are small detail decisions which may only impact a couple of people.

I sometimes struggle with the time frame in which I make these decisions. I often put off making a decision when I feel it is a difficult choice. Nine times out of ten, I hem and haw for twenty four to forty eight hours over the decision, and then choose what I had originally thought was the right decision.

If I could be more decisive up front, I would save myself a lot of time and anguish.

I’m going to try to listen to my own advice.

Consider the information you have at hand. Don’t hesitate. Make the best decision possible in the moment.
