From information I’ve found searching the internet (not always the safest way to gather trustworthy data quickly, but it’ll be fine for today), it appears that adults make about 35,000 daily decisions.
35,000 decisions. Water vs tea, tap water or Pellegrino, lemon or no lemon, straw or no straw…just ordering a drink with lunch could be overwhelming if you think about it. As bad as water is, don’t even think about what you go through trying to order a coffee at Starbucks.
One of the common threads I’ve found amongst the business leaders I work with is that they’re willing to make decisions and live with the consequences. Sometimes things work out, sometimes they don’t, but if you aren’t willing to make decisions you’ll spend your life at the lunch table and never get your glass of water.
Make decisions, give your opinion, forge your road ahead. Remember that all the ‘failures’ that come from making decisions are simply steps towards success.
