In the wind


In uncertain times, the most valued commodity is certainty.

No one likes being left hanging. No one, you included, enjoys that niggling feeling of having something out there, dangling in the wind, waiting for someone to make a decision. Double if it’s a someone whom we either don’t know or have no ability to influence. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. Sure, sometimes there’s a damn good reason. But often, most times, almost always, it’s a bad reason … like they haven’t focused, or they’ve let their decision-muscle atrophy, or don’t get just how important it is.

Don’t be that guy. Don’t be the person that other people are swearing about.

Make up you mind, make the call and let everyone get on with what happens next, either way. (And if you can’t, tell them why and tell them when you can.)

Skippy strategy: Make the decision and let everyone get on with it.
