A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided – Tony Robbins
Today, you are going to make at least one decision. And that decision will be to review how you take decisions.
People rise and fall on the basis of the decisions they make. The decisions you take either make or mar you; take you forward or draw you backward.
However, indecision has only one outcome. It draws you backwards.
In my life, I’ve not regretted any decision, though some of them turned out bad and unproductive, but I
have had many regrets due to indecision and inaction. I’ve seen opportunities slip by because I was too slow to make up my mind or I was too afraid; too considerate to act in time.
That brings me to the point. Decision without corresponding action is equal to indecision. No, it is worse than indecision.
Many times I’ve heard folks say, I decided to do this or that. One that I hear very often is: “I’ve decided that I will do physical exercise every day, I need to slim down.” Few weeks later, you ask the same person how it is going, you hear, “I know I’ll still do it. I start soon. It is just that I’ve been too busy lately….”
You will always find excuses, when decision is faulty.
Immediately after decision is made, an action plan has to be prepared and then action taken.
So make a decision now on something you want to change in yourself life. Take the first step [action]by writing it out clearly in this book. Then write out the implementation plan with commencement and termination dates. Then, take action using what you have written as a reference.
