The Key to Success, or How Great Leaders Act and Decide
The power of decision making is crucial. But most people do not understand this. They put off making decisions for a long time, not realizing the fact that they have the ability to make life-changing decisions. So, how do you jump over this "wall of resistance"? Successful leaders around the world have developed the ability to make decisions, and that's how they do it.
They plan well.
A clear plan with accurate and distinct deadlines sends a powerful signal to both your consciousness and the subconscious. He says: "Hey, you need to do the work, so don’t waste your time on all this nonsense." It helps you focus on the most important tasks. In this situation, even a “one eye” look at the news feed on Facebook is unlikely to appear.
By working in this way you force yourself to move in simple and short steps, accelerating and completing your task. Thanks to such tactics, you will be able to make decisions automatically, it will also help you overcome your need for procrastination and create a clear workflow.
They do not meditate - they just begin to act.
During planning, the head can go around from fantastic, it would seem, goals. It is important to know exactly when to stop planning and move on to action. The endless hours spent drawing up the plan will not lead you to anything if you stay in the planning area for too long.
If you want the work done, it's important to get started. Do not wait until a wonderful idea falls on your head. Act a little - but do not stand still.
You do not need to develop the most complex plan in the world. You just have to start.
They go to the goal in huge steps.
After you take a small step, it's time to make a big one. And even better - quickly gain momentum and rush c space speed. The world is changing very quickly, and you simply cannot afford to respond slowly to changes.
Therefore, successful leaders love to act.
Take any successful company for consideration, and you will be amazed at its speed. They fly forward at the speed of lightning, crushing and inventing something new every day and releasing products at the right time.
This will not happen if you go to the goal with baby steps - you need to jump, and jump as far as possible.
They turn the soft “I should” into the hard “I should”.
When you think that you “should” do something, the fuse is lost even before you start work. On the other hand, when you say that you “need” to do something, the energy around is transformed, and enthusiasm returns to you.
The phrase “I should” makes work a burden, while the phrase “I should” makes it a priority.
A soft statement of the question leads to delay, and a hard one leads to action.
Changing “should” to “should” may seem unconvincing to you, but it brings huge changes in your attitude to work, pushing you to action. Why not test this tactic on yourself?
They know when to listen to the mind, and when to listen to the heart.
Many say that you need to listen to the heart, not the mind. But often the decisions made by the heart are too emotional and can have dire consequences. So in the end, you can regret your impulsive decisions.
Do not dwell on the heart or mind - use them “in conjunction”. Keep the balance.
Great leaders know when to empathize and when to be strict. When to console and when to be angry. That is the whole difference.
