One of the best decision making skills you can acquire is the ability to properly time your actions. The fact that you have a dozen different decisions to make shouldn’t cause you to rush them. Even the best decision can become an utter failure if timed incorrectly.
Imagine for a moment that you are the owner of a huge chain of coffee shoppes. As your chain grows in popularity, a myriad of small coffee shoppes are popping up, hoping to compete with you. You know that this will continue to happen but your chain has a very strong brand. In response to the competition, you decide to open 200 additional stores around the country and begin focusing on opening stores in other countries as well. Before you know it, you’ve beaten your competition to the punch and are now situated strongly in almost every area your competition might want to open a store.
Of course, you probably aren’t responsible for determining when to open a huge chain of stores but you’ll have similarly important situations. Making properly-timed decisions isn’t rocket science. As a matter of fact, if you put the decision making skills you already have to work you’ll find that determining when to release your best decisions isn’t as tough as you thought it might be.
