Consult before you decide!

Sometimes the best decision to make is to make no decision for the time being. We are often governed by our emotions. A decision based on anger or hurt is nearly always the wrong decision.                                                                          When under pressure we need to consult with others. What we need is a neutral, objective and fair-minded approach. When seeking advice warn your friends and colleagues not to tell you what they think you want to hear. Tell them that you value their opinion. Speak to a number of people about how you feel and what decision you might be going to make. I’ve met many people who tell me that they don’t know why they made certain decisions. You should always know why you make a decision and be confident about it. Big decisions need time and are better made with consultation.
