Well, one thing for sure, my decisions are mine!
It seems that we are spoilt for choice these days. So many options, so many varieties, so much food, so much entertainment, where shall we go next for our holiday, it goes on and on. How do we respond? Having a wide range of choices is good for us, surely? Not really, it seems. We are told that when we are faced with too many choices, we tend to freeze and not make any choices at all. Or perhaps it is that we choose not to choose and default to whatever is safe and familiar. Does having too many choices cause you become paralyzed when you ought to be swift and decisive?
“Wait a minute,” you might say, “Isn’t having many choices, having many options, good for us? After all, that’s what strategy is all about, isn’t it, creating more options?” You would be right, of course. That is, if the options you create are all viable, executable options. If they aren’t then they are simply the products of flights of fancy, and we all know where that goes! If you’ve been following my posts, you would know that there is a difference between the exercise of imagination and indulgence in fantasy. Dream big, dream fantastic, dream ennobling, dream inspiring, and you won’t go wrong. Dreaming that way helps you stay focused and productive.
