Achieve business success through growing a high-performing team

Lighten your decision load

When your success depends on the quality of the decisions you make – and let’s face it, that’s all of us! – it can be very easy to be overwhelmed.

You want to set some goals and performance outcomes, but it’s easy to often commit to too much, don’t you think?

Behind the tendency to overcommit sits fear. If you don’t believe me, ask yourself why you can’t say ‘no’ more often.

We know SMART goals, or whatever we call them these days, are where it’s at. But what if we’ve picked the wrong goals – or too many of them – in the first place?

Decision fatigue

Of course, you want to make the most of every opportunity, and having loads of opportunities is good, right?

Up to a point… the point where you can’t make one more decision! Then you’ve hit decision fatigue.

Avoiding decision fatigue is what’s behind all those successful people who wear the same outfit every day. If you’re Mark Zuckerberg, you wear a grey t-shirt and jeans every day and say things like 

I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.

The rest of us use simple tools to make better decisions with purpose…
