In today’s world, by the time you are 100% sure an idea is good, you are often too late.
Many people over-process decisions. The more they analyze it, the more the options bog them down.
Some studies show that people make better decisions when they are fast decisions.
By fast, I don’t mean sloppy or irrational. A great “decision maker” often takes in the facts and can intuitively (or supernaturally) sense what the right decision is.
I’ll often force a decision with a staff member. When she is stalling, I occasionally pull out a quarter and say, “By the time this lands on the ground, you’re going to tell me what you think is right.” As I flip the coin into the air, she’ll generally give me her decision.
How have you seen this play out in your world?
