No one really seems to speak about decisions and the power it has. When you hear about decision making, you often hear about planning and taking time before deciding. I want to share with you a different view on decision making and why it’s so powerful. This post follows my previous post on habits, so read it before this. You decide every day, about the most trivial things in your life. Are you taking a long time to decide on insignificant things? If so, then you also most likely procrastinate. Do you waste time trying to decide? Are you often not sure about your original decision? Do you keep having to change your decision?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you are an indecisive person. You’re not alone because most people are. Observe any great leader and you will see they often decide quickly and commit to their decisions. People who procrastinate or are indecisive, decide slowly and change their decisions often. This is the exact opposite of what a leader should do. Maybe you don’t want to lead. However, being decisive is a trait that will have positive effects on all areas of your life.
Decisions are the beginning
- Should I wake up or snooze a little longer?
- Should I workout or not?
- Should I help or not?
- Should I say yes or no?
