On NOT Making a Decision

Leaders make decisions.

Knowing how to make a decision is a key leadership trait. More important than making a decision however, is knowing when NOT to make a decision.

Tired, overwhelmed, underwhelmed, reactive, or on the defense? Feeling let down, put down, or simply down and out? Want to make a point, create some noise or grab the control you feel like you have lost? Feeling the pressure to make it quickly, yet your inner voice is telling you to wait?

Listen to your inner voice. Take 5 (or 24), tend to yourself and don't make that decision until morning.
