Unless you save lives, you don’t really need to make split-second decisions.
Actual and published timelines generally differ; there’s always time – unless you know that there really isn’t – to make the best decision.
Be apprehensive of anyone rushing you into making a decision. Chances are, if you have to rush, you probably don’t have all the information you need to make a wise decision. People sometimes have hidden agendas…
Slow things down, conduct your research and make the best decision. In the end, your business or professional success will be judged by the outcomes and the quality of your decisions rather than the speed at which you took them. This really isn’t a contest.
