Every decision we make and put into action delivers a certain result. Deciding your next goals for the up-coming week and also for the next month will bring new results. Those results will carry the information whether or not you´d reached what you decided to get.
You may have reached to only buy fresh veggies and no more food in cans or glasses. You may have reached to speak with 15 potential clients and you came back with 2 or 3 new clients and their first orders. You may have booked your next vacation or weekend trip! You may have simply worked for 3 weeks straight to finish 4 of your clients orders. You may have worked hard to get things done for your clients to receive new, fresh orders.
Fact is that your results only deliver information about the past and past action. It´s the contemplation of your ability of the input of tools and resources which gives information about the future (results)!
Did you ever thought about it?
You plant what you´ll get. If you get a lot one day, there must have been a lot of input from your side. Think again: if you´d always do the same as you did all the time before, nothing is going to change except you might lose this and that, and you´d gain losses due to change in the world.
As a decider you are more aware than others that only YOU plant your future results by yourself. (Sorry but I have to double this message as a positive effect!)
And yes I have to admit that there´s one thing all deciders may lack a bit: it´s sometimes the lack of power of NOT always being the stage director for our decisions! If we stay on stage we need to add TIME as an investment, time to wait for things to gather so that the decisions will bring our aimed results.
Why this topic today?
As an ex (long-term) employee from the German Automotive Supplier Industry I allowed others to do the planting for me ……. planting for their results.
I agreed to it yes, and also I didn´t plant things for myself. I was no decider, at some point. The result was …. what I still have to pay for being 5 years on a new path. There was nothing new planted for me! I knew there wouldn´t be a positive or ANY result waiting for me in the near future but WORK to do. Fact.
Positively, the land was free and empty for new things! The new result in my future was some new crop. Not being a stage director from the first day on, made it very hard for me to decide the right things. No script! No role! No new social network!
My dear reader,
this is no complaining, this is telling you clearly how much our decision making rules our world! It´s a clear hint that we have to act and plan(t) and run after what we want (GOALS) and the best method to reach this – is decision making!
