Delayed decisions lead to overwhelm, procrastination, disappointment, frustration, and lack of results.
Delayed Decisions Mantra:
Or Delete it.
Set up email filters, unsubscribe from emails, start fresh with a new email, outsource to someone else.
Delegate it: To yourself- put it on the calendar or boomerang to another time. To someone else. Do you need to know the outcome? Put a reminder to follow up on an agenda/task list or in your calendar. To a folder: Will you need this later – does it matter if it is organized or not? In a time of searchable email and unlimited space, I don’t feel it is the end of the world to have a catch all folder for people that just can’t hit delete.
Do it: Can you do it right now? Good enough? Will the task take you completely on a tangent?
Delete it: What happens if it doesn’t get done? Really? How many delayed decisions will NEVER get done. Are you passive aggressively saying ‘no’ instead of owning the decision?
You don’t have to recreate the wheel; you just have to make it turn.
