“Success isn’t magic or hocus-pocus. It’s simply learning how to focus.”
~Mark Victor Hansen
Equivocation exploits choice. Are you like the Mad Hatter, always running around, indecisive and hyper, actually doing nothing but creating a frenzy? Or, do you drive others mad because it takes you too long to decide?
Successful people are not equivocators. Winner decisively take risks. Champions weigh the consequences and then make a choice. Deliberateness, not evasion, is a mark of success.
Make fact-based decisions. Here are five steps to make it easy:
- Determine the issues. Write a column of pros and cons; listing the benefits or consequences of a potential choice.
- Review the list. Consult with others who may be neutral or passionate about the outcome.
- Examine possibilities. Look at best practices, fact-find, and analyze optional strategies.
- Consider consequences of each possibility. Critically review whether the consequences outweigh the possibility or vice-versa.
- Make a decision. Take action. Act as if the outcome has already happened. Live with the bold assurance that your decision has been confirmed and you are on your guided path.
Be decisive, focus your success lens.
