Be decisive

The Best Decision

How important is it for leaders to be decisive?  Consider these words from Theodore Roosevelt: 

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”

Sometimes shooting from the hip, good leaders can make decisions quickly — often with incomplete data. And, yes, hasty decisions can cause problems. But making no decision at all can worsen an already-bad situation. I’ve decided I’m going to try to be more decisive in my day-to-day business as a leader and a team player.


What will you decide?
