Exactly 2 years ago I did a Biz Launch Program to start TA Consulting with its Decision Making topic. One of my most challenging decisions in life – it was the best alternative for me compared to: “sit & wait”…..
Today a strong decider myself, I was confronted with many decisions in my early life: I was a young person who needed information, mostly gathered by research and interviews on the “Health Care Stage” as an ex-permanent patient. Still, I “own” a very rare genetic default called “McCune-Albright-Syndrome”, causing faulty running processes in the body during childhood & development. I was raised with meeting many decisions made by M.D.´s (Doctors) and Professors, unprepared myself, with the aim to help me getting back on my feet again. Decisions belong to my life, ever since.
Life taught me a lot about positive results and lessons learned. Life taught me a lot about dreams & goals and a strong will to get there. Life always gave me opportunities to change each status quo.
There are positive sides of the medal:
doing research, asking more questions than probably necessary on every stage is part of my thought process in uncertain situations. I always seek for extra information!
This gives me a certain feeling when things are still 60 – 40 % unclear. I know that there´s a time when we have to turn the tables in life to change a situation or to simply get ahead and we must know that there´s no way to be sure it´ll turn out (quickly) well. No! Mostly, we face a long uncertain situation after we took a decision, and THIS is what takes us away from the Status Quo.
Moving is the factor! And we move by making prepared decisions. Reaching the result on “this way” as planned might be uncertain (less than 100 % uncertain) but if we don´t try we´ll never get to know –
Now what about a Quick Start towards 2017 ?????
Imagine you will start moving towards change with only knowing 40 – 60 % of the needed information which would cover all the uncertainties (100 %) you´re going to face!?!?! Will you move? Are 40 – 60 % information enough for you to make the first move?
Imagine, 40 – 60 % of information are enough to move forward, because during moving forward you´ll receive more missing information which fill-up the information-pot (100 % is max.) – is this INFO or option something which persuades you to move forward?
Here´s the secret:
if you keep yourself being informed about facts and possibilities for reaching your dreams & goals, all that can and will happen is getting ahead! Even if you turn in circles for a while, during that time you will receive new information for taking the next step – just think back of how and what you´ve learned in school. Didn´t the information you had to learn always in some way, helped you understanding more and more to pass each test? (…. okay, okay a great teacher is the premise here)
with a mindset of being a permanently informed person, all you can “do” in a positive way is: making informed decisions!
How do you inform yourself?
Ask experts (pay them if necessary!), read topic related books (note the details), have an eye on your own lessons learned, know “who” you are (education, talent, hobbies, strength & weaknesses) and have a plan “where” you want to go –
With all this in your hands now, you have the great opportunity to quick start into 2017 !!! !!! !!!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
