“You want me to make your decisions for you!

You want someone else to make the decision!

You want to procrastinate hesitate and think about it.

 

Make a decision will you please.”

 

 

The famous words of my boss many years ago in my first management review.

 

Decision Making – the great weakness in America today.

 

We try and teach people to lead.

But we often forget the most important piece of leadership.

The ability to make a decision – now!

 

Why?

 

When I attended a conference in LA earlier this year I kept hearing the same thing, “why can’t our leaders make decisions.”

 

My former boss and mentor Nate taught me many years ago.

“Manny, make a decision and start moving forward.

When you make a decision, things start to move.

If you make the wrong decision, all you have to do is make another one to correct it.

But make a decision now and start moving forward.”

 

Nate was teaching, “It is easier to ask forgiveness than permission,” Long before it became popular.

 

If you want to be a great leader, then you have to learn to make decisions.

 

Start today to make decisions.

 

Stop thinking so hard.

 

Look at what you know.

 

Then, make a decision and start moving forward.

If you need to make corrections, it is easy, just make another decision.

 

Want to be part of the 5% that are different, or the 95% that are like everyone else?

 

It is lonely and hard and can be very stressful at the top – but!

Making a decision requires you to put it out there.

It requires taking a risk.

It requires standing up when everyone else is sitting down.

It requires you to put your values on the line.

It means that many times you won’t be liked!

Are you looking to be popular – or are you looking to make a real difference?

Looking to make a difference, or just go along with the program?

 

Those who make decisions are real leaders.  Those that don’t are just people in leadership positions going nowhere.

 

Which one do you want to be?
