This week I thought about the issue of the Quality of Decision Taking!
This aspect sure needs some attention, especially for the time AFTER the decision was made. It´s the exact time when it comes to realise the new path with your daily habits and actions, aimed to reach the result. There are 4 parts to look at:
Discipline: daily repeating the new action without any distraction is what discipline is about. It simply means you stay on track towards your goal.
Target-oriented: that means you think of and work on reaching the new result on a daily basis. You consider the new necessary actions within the available time frame of yours or of the team.
Focussed: being focussed means you don´t lose sight of the new goal and it goes hand-in-hand with acting target-oriented on a daily basis.
Stability: is the same as rigidity – you slowly build and then walk on a new path of actions and when repeatingly acting towards the chosen goal, without any distraction during a certain time, your actions will be firm. That´s called stability and it´s a big part of quality.
Here´s an example: lately you chose further education which will take 2 years in total. The exams take place after certain blocks. Your aim is to increase your competency/authority.
To reach this goal you chose, you invest $$ from your budget, you invest extra time on a daily basis, you train your idea-Mgmt. and your learning aptitude. You start with a plan when to learn (what time suits you best?) and how long you´ll learn on a daily basis (2-3 hrs.). That´s the new action! Now you have to implement this new plan into your life. My advice: learn 4 x per week.
You work on not being distracted during this time to reach your goal without changing this plan. If you have to increase the time for extra learning when the exams get closer – Yes, that´s another good decision!

Goal reaching is a huge part of decision taking! The moment you decide, you start with change. The moment change starts, it´s up to you how disciplined you are going to reach it! Keep the stability in mind – and GO!
Be a Decision Maker – be outstanding!
