Recently I’ve been dealing with someone who just won’t commit to a decision. At last I said to them, “time to shit or get off the pot.”
Limbo is a dangerous place, a place where energy is expended achieving nothing, a place where you kid yourself that you are making progress because you are ‘making a good decision’, but in fact you a just taking up space.
We delay decisions mainly out of fear; either fear of missing out, or fear of doing the wrong thing.
I believe the best decision is the right one, the second best is the wrong one, and the worst decision is no decision at all, essentially sitting on the ‘pot’ doing nothing.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
