Delaying a Decision is Good Decision Making
March 23, 2012
In his book Entreleadership, finance guru and talk-show host Dave Ramsey covers everything you will likely face as a business leader. Yet the principles he share are for everyone, even those who are not in business. He gives some advice on Making Decisions.
He says that sometimes good decision making can mean deciding to be “Passively Active.” Deciding not to decide right now is a decision. That is different from being paralyzed by fear.
Decide not to decide while you are angry. Sometimes we decide not to decide until we have more information, or decide not to decide while we are tired or fearful.
We will take look at making decisions in my next few blogs from Dave’s teaching. I will combine his insights with my personal stories and illustrations.
If you are about to make a big decision today, this is a must-read for you!
