Decision by Procrastination

Decisions, DecisionsToo many times I see indecisive people put off making a determination because they are too scared to make the call. However, as the Rush song goes, “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice”. If you put off making a decision long enough, you end up with the status quo or the decision of least resistance.

I do know someone who uses that to their advantage and allows certain decisions to be delayed, knowing that they will ultimately not get made, and that the hare-brained plan will end up never taking off.

Don’t let that be you. Don’t live your life on the path of least resistance.

There is something to be said for making sure you have enough information to judge wisely, but more often than not indecision is about fear. Consider the data, think about the options and tradeoffs, include your experience and the experience of those on your team, and “shoot the three”.
