Promoting Leadership Principles in Product Management

Decisions, decisions

1 Comment

Do you ever find it difficult to make decisions? I certainly do. In fact, my wife recently observed that I sometimes put off making decisions about things as long as I can. I’ve observed that when I put off making decisions it’s usually because I’m not ready to let go of the alternatives.

I found a great post from Mark Sanborn that takes a look at decisions from the perspective of making things happen vs. letting them happen; active vs. passive. The act of making decisions usually has a positive effect:

Making an important decision can be just the dramatic event you need to change course. Committing to a new course of action needs to be dramatic to get off the undesired course you’re on. Going through the discomfort or pain of changing a negative behavior is dramatic but might just save your life.

Take the active approach and make things happen that will benefit your life.

    WORDPRESS says that our two blogs (at least our most recent posts) are related, so I came by to check you out. Please stop by my place and let me know what you think (and maybe add Jesus + CompassionJesus + Compassion to your blog roll so we can stay connected).
    God bless you!
