And yet how many senior officers don't?



What do you make?

Decisions.

You don't run a punch press or haul iron ore. Your job is to make decisions.

The thing is, the farmer who grows corn has no illusions about what his job is. He doesn't avoid planting corn or dissemble or procrastinate about harvesting corn. And he certainly doesn't try to get his neighbor to grow his corn for him.

Make more decisions. That's the only way to get better at it.

  1. Is there anything more enjoyable than being the guy who has the authority to make decisions? I don't mind being the guy who influences the decision, but it sure isn't as much fun. I will never understand the reluctance of some to "Be the Decider"!
