Can’t see the trees for the forest?

Americans are known to love quick decision making. And decisive action gives many of us a rush. But the “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” and “Mission accomplished!” approach doesn’t work.

  1. You can’t give critical details the attention they deserve, and spend time repairing inherent problems that could have been more productive.
  2. It’s based on impulsive and random insights, ignoring “big-picture” thinking and the benefits of lessons learned over the years.
  3. It relies more on expediency than on your personal style, values and qualities
  4. Not involving other stakeholders in the decision making process gives them less reason to help with fixes, implementation or improvements.
  5. Trying to document and assess what you do, and how well you’ve done it, is often impossible–like trying to change a flat tire when you can’t stop the car.

There’s a better way. You can identify and fully leverage the many skills, talents and experiences that got you this far. Armed with new clarity and focus, you can make decisions more quickly than ever, without setting yourself up for unnecessary extra work and confusion.

Social media age decisions must be made more quickly, and address very dynamic issues using “on-the-fly” information and untested collaborations. But don’t short-change yourself by overlooking the critical details. Give your business an edge and thrive with your own Gold Mine Map.
