Secret No. 39: Decisions… Decisions… Decisions…

How quick do you make decisions?

The speed with which you make a personal, business, or marketing can be the difference between success and failure.

Often, it doesn’t matter what the decision that you make actually is as long as you decide something.

The more quickly that you make a decision, the sooner that you can get on to the next item.

Because nothing happens until something moves.

Now, and I think you’ll agree. It is far better to make a wrong decision and then fix it than it is to make no decision at all. You can learn from your mistakes, but you can’t learn if you don’t act. To quote Ross Perot, “Ready, Fire! Aim

In many instances, it takes a lot less time and effort to correct a wrong decision than it takes to analyze and procrastinate before making the original decision.

Think of yourself as a guided missile speeding toward your target, making the required adjustments as you go but always moving forward.

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes.
It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving
your other innovations.”

– Steve Jobs

When you learn to make decisions quickly you gain momentum.

Each quick decision adds additional momentum to your success flywheel. You will find that the more the flywheel gains momentum, the less effort that it takes to reach your ultimate goal.

I delayed making some important decisions while I was put these secrets together, only to become very frustrated when I calculated the lost opportunities that I may have left on the table.

Taking too much time to write “97 Marketing Secrets To Make More Money” cost me a lot of money. I should have acted more quickly. Nobody’s perfect. We all make mistakes at one time or another.

However, it is important that we move forward, learn from our mistakes, and try again with something else.

What decisions do you need to make right now?
