Decisiveness (vs. Procrastination)
Processing information and finalizing difficult decisions
To practice Decisiveness I will:
- Not look back
- Do what I say
- Make the right decision and stick to it
- Look at things from more than one point of view before making up my mind
- Not give in to peer pressure
You’ve heard the idioms: ‘clear cut’, ‘cut and dried’, and ‘to cut a deal’. These are all decisive statements and should not be confused with rash decisions or snap reactions. Decisiveness is knowing what facts are important to consider in making a decision, knowing the right decision to make and taking responsibility to see that decision through to completion. A decision without action is not really a decision. Having good character is a sure foundation for being able to process information into sound decisions.
This month exercise your decisiveness and make solid, clear-cut decisions.
