The Importance of Making Fast and Well-Informed Decisions

One of the central tasks in almost all professional and leadership roles is the ability to make decisions quickly and effectively. It is crucial to develop the skill of making decisions without delay, but ensuring they are well-informed. To achieve this, professionals should adopt a habit of being explicit learners, constantly seeking new knowledge and insights. They should also cultivate a mindset of observing, orienting, deciding, and acting, which helps them make decisions more rapidly. Embracing simplicity is another key aspect, as simple plans and approaches are more easily understood and implemented within organizations.
