A checklist for Making Decisions

A checklist for Making Decisions

Have you figured out your focus?
Do you have a way of determining your focus, based on what really matters or what really counts?

When faced with a decision, ask yourself:
  1. Is this consistent with my priorities?
  2. Is this within my area of competence?
  3. Can someone else do it better?
  4. What do my trusted friends say?
  5. Do I have the time?

When you say “yes” to an opportunity, get ready to focus.
Make to-do lists.
Set your priorities.
Avoid clutter.
Pursue excellence, but avoid perfectionism.
Question everything.
Work to prevent procrastination.
Control interruptions and distractions.
Use the calendar.
Narrow your wedge – don't try to do everything. That means you'll have to say no to some good things.

From the John Maxwell Leadership Bible.
“If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.”
