Irrelevant Uncertainty In Your Decisions

Actions and decisions are what drive you forward. Many of these will be wrong or wasteful. It’s difficult in a fast-paced or changing world to get all of the data to make perfect decisions and act accordingly.

Uncertainty can impede your decision-making. However, uncertainty is often present. With advice and counsel in what next steps to take, you are trusting another to move forward. Without this, you have your own intuition and experience.

Here’s my take in most matters – excluding the space program, drug research and other life-threatening, low margin endeavors – regarding you to take action. Make a decision and be comfortable with uncertainty. Taking small steps helps you determine the next steps. Be flexible and adjust.

If you don’t know what job to do next, what business to start, then decide on what your gut is telling you. Work it for a time and see what develops. If you find a straight path and more clarity along the way, then proceed.

If you find yourself with more friction but clarity on new things you want, then proceed. Don’t mistake adversity for wrong decisions, by the way. It’s often part of anything worth doing.

I like action people. They make the world move, and their embrace of failure sets them head and shoulders above the mass majority of people uncomfortable with uncertainty. Don’t miss the shots you don’t take.
