It is amazing to be your boss. However, I have to admit, although I love being my own boss, I still struggle with making decisions. I’m sure other entrepreneurs would agree.
Many people don’t realize how powerful the act of making a decision can have. In my entrepreneurial opportunities, I don’t focus on statistics, growth rate, products, or other metrics. My focus is on my team of dedicated leaders. The simple act of making a choice can instill so much confidence within these leaders that it could have a ripple effect throughout your company.
If it were easy to choose what to do and what to put off, then this would make life easier for those readers who are like-minded. Do you think that being a better leader would result in better organizational results if you can make more calculated decisions? That is my answer. I welcome your feedback. These are just a few of the tips and tricks I have to share, based only on my business endeavors.
Allow your brain to rest.
For a few moments, try to shut off your brain. Sometimes you don’t expect to get much insight. The same applies when you are focused on making an important decision. You can turn your attention to something else or focus on something that is not directly related to the decision. You can give your brain the time it needs to process all of the information stored by resting your head.
Don’t try to solve a problem, but decide.
While decisions may sometimes solve problems, this is not always true. My experience is that many decisions are made without going through the analysis phase. Instead, they go straight to my gut or intuition. Ask yourself what feels right.
Stop trying to be perfect.
The bottom line is: Don’t wait until everything is perfect. It is impossible to know everything before making a decision. This is especially true if you are an entrepreneur. You will need to trust your instincts and believe in yourself.
Sometimes, we make mistakes.
Perhaps we didn’t think things through, or the end result led us in the wrong direction. Acknowledge the problem and work to fix it. It will make you more respected if you admit to making a mistake. This will increase loyalty among your team of leaders.
Making decisions are part of everyday life. Good decisions can make a difference in your home-based business.
“You need to know that any decision you make can make a difference in your life. The next person you meet, sitting beside you on the plane, or in line, or the next phone call you to make or get, or the next movie or book you read, could all be pivotal in causing the floodgates of opportunity to open and allow you to see the possibilities. All of the things you have been waiting for will come true. Anthony Robbins
