Would You Just Make a Stinkin’ Decision Already?

Seth Godin: Make a decision. It doesn’t have to be a wise or perfect one. Just make one.

Here’s what Seth writes:

It doesn’t have to be a wise decision or a perfect one. Just make one.

In fact, make several. Make more decisions could be your three word mantra.

No decision is a decision as well, the decision not to decide. Not deciding is usually the wrong decision. If you are the go-to person, the one who can decide, you’ll make more of a difference. It doesn’t matter so much that you’re right, it matters that you decided.

Of course it’s risky and painful. That’s why it’s a rare and valuable skill.

Seriously, Pastor. Make a decision. Don’t be stupid, but do make a decision. Stop your teetering. Pick a side. Be decisive.

Seriously, Church leader. Make a call. The facts will never ALL be in. The situation will never be perfect to make the perfect decision.

And most decisions have some inherent risk involved. That’s ok. Risk is a good thing.

So… you’ve got five minutes. Just make the decision.

And you know exactly which decision I’m talking about. The one that’s been dogging you for days, even weeks or months. Should I do this, or should I do that?

Most decisions do not take weeks or months.

If you need to… start out slow. Small decision. Any decision. Just make one.
