Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire. –Arnold H. Glasow
Simply put, indecision is the progress killer.
Decide, revise, decide, revise should be the herald of the true adventurer and sovereign woman.
There is a quality that all great leaders look for that is a diamond indeed hard to come by, and that is the quality of self initiative.
Most people wait for direction, then once received they execute and seek approval and direction for revision based on their actions.
How many times, when faced with a decision today, have you responded automatically with “I don’t know” and deferred taking action, or asked someone else to make the decision?
This type of behavior is habitual and is your greatest predator threatening your survival as an entrepreneur.
For the next week, challenge yourself to ban the phrase “I don’t know” from your vocabulary, and replace it with the words “I’ll figure it out.” Those four words make up the mantra of the world’s greatest influencers.
Whether it’s choosing where to go out to lunch with the boys, or what movie to watch with your lover, offer to make the decision at any opportunity you can. The more you exercise your decision making muscles, the more powerful and productive you’ll become.
