When building your profitable practice, there may be times when you need to make spontaneous decisions. When faced with decisions, you want to have the best information possible. Some people spend too much time trying to find as much information as they can, and they miss opportunities because of it. Information is a key component in decision making. However, sometimes, you simply must make spontaneous decisions and live with those choices without any information.
You don’t want others to view you as someone who makes rash decisions. You’ll lose credibility when you do this, and people won’t take you seriously. However, you must prepare yourself for certain times where being decisive is necessary. For instance, you may be registering for classes at your college and discovered that a few of the courses you were hoping to take are full. You’re given other choices, but are unsure of how that will fit into your overall plan. Do you enroll in these alternative classes?
You may decide to go for the classes. If they’re part of your curriculum, you can always rework your plans so that they fit in. Talk to your academic advisor and ask how to proceed after taking this new path. Of course, you could always drop the classes if they don’t fit well. The point is, if a decision doesn’t work out, the wrong results can usually be fixed.
Don’t be afraid to take the plunge.
The shoe company, Nike, has a slogan that worked for them for several decades now. That slogan is “Just do it.” A structured living doesn’t fit well with some people. They need the excitement that comes with making spontaneous decisions. Who’s to say that their way is wrong? It may not work for others, but for them, it works quite well. You may know people who are like this and are envious of them. That isn’t the same scenario as people who don’t do much with their lives.
Spontaneous decision makers are often doing many activities. You can decide to do nothing, but you won’t get far. Unless you’re lucky enough to come from money and your parents are willing to give you that money, you will need to find something to do. Most people will find a balance of decisions they make based on information and spontaneous decisions. The process of decision making becomes easier the more you do it. Therefore when you need to make spontaneous decisions, it will not be as difficult after a while
Sometimes making decisions can be difficult. Check out our blog post here for tips on using decision trees to help you during those difficult times.
