Making Good Decisions Better Ones
Philosopher William James once said that once a decision is made you should stop worrying and start working. In other words, it's not always what we know for sure BEFORE we make the decision that makes it a good one. It's what we do AFTER we make the decision to make it happen that makes it good.
As business owners, we often over-rate decision making and under-rate decision managing. One of the ways we get both is by prioritizing.
One of the simplest ways I use to prioritize my day I learned from John Maxwell, leadership and productivity expert. Each morning I take five minutes, look at my calendar and ask myself:
"Of everything I'm going to do today what is the main event?"
The way Maxwell says we define our main event is through the "3 R's of prioritizing."
1. What is required of me?
2. What gives me the greatest return on my efforts?
3. What is rewarding to me?
Each morning spend 5 minutes going through these questions, and once you have come up with your main event, spend more time, energy, and focus on theat main event than any other task in your day. Be prepared and keep the main thing the main thing!
