Happy New Year!!
I am wishing you all the best for this new year – may you keep yourself in best condition!
As your Decision Trainer, I think we start slow into 2017.
Everyone relaxes at the end of the old year and many of you probably enjoy a short vacation during the 1st week of the new year.
Not every New Years Resolution includes wide spread decision activities but many of you require a well running self-management, so that each new activity stays on.
In case of your decisions which affect your life and activities in 2017, you know that you have TO DO IT! Nothing of your own decisions is possible to delegate to someone else.
If you make decisions for a team, then – yes, you will have to offer various roles to the team. For Decision Making, delegating isn´t the best method because to reach a goal which solves a (massive) problem, everyone must be commited to solve it. Tasks must be clear all the time, and then “do it” is the activity for everyone.
The DOING I talk about includes:
- information gathering (use the brain storming method)
- place each information into the decision structure
- take time to evaluate the information (either yourself or in groups)
- set-up the whole process
- do the planning
- ….. once the decision is done, when the choice is made, go for the activities
- set the dates and relevant tasks
- all what´s left is: do it!
Once you feel that it´s kind of fun for you, you know that you´re in the right place, living and working with the right people and topics. The good thing is, when living and working in the right place, decision making is fun! High achievers, who make quick and good decisions once it´s relevant or asked by someone, such decisions which deliver great results for both sides, they all live and work in the right place! RIGHT means, that everyone is interested and motivated to be there.
I am no life coach or mentor right now, but one secret of great decision making is to
–> BE IN YOUR IDEAL MOVIE.
A Decision Maker is acting like a director and like a role player. It includes both. And decisions always include responsibility. From all role-players.
That´s the trick – you have to learn and train yourself to play 2 roles and be responsible for both roles and their results. You are an actor with 2 roles. It´s no game. It´s life. There is at least 1 (main) activity you have to take over, after the choice is made. That´s why decision makers will have to DO it.
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
