If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not being proactive enough. Being proactive, making decisions, kicking ass, and taking names, moving forward regardless of circumstances all lead to making mistakes. The key to massive mistakes is to make decisions quickly and to make fewer poor decisions in the process. This builds momentum quickly.
I’ve often said, “Sure I make mistakes, but I never make the same one twice.” And the doingness associated with making decisions quickly and the creation of momentum while continuing to move forward is what has allowed me to have more high-quality experiences in my life than the average person.
In fact, when I am in a group, I try to filter my sharing of experiences in my life to three if I am in a “normal” group of people, because anything past three amazing experiences experienced in one person’s life is overwhelming, if not offensive, to “normal” people.
If you belabor and delay your decision-making abilities, you will miss so many otherwise utterly amazing opportunities which you may have enjoyed.
Certainly, you must exercise your due diligence and make decisions based on evaluating the data that you have. Though keep in mind that every moment you spend in data collection, discovery, and other
Will keep you from experiencing the joy of your opportunity, as it may slip away from you while you are buried in the details.
Will you make mistakes? Of course, you will, but the best statistics reward you for rapid decision-making. Around the world, those who make rapid decisions experience 80% more financial success and enjoyment from life every day than those who spend more time going over the details, postponing their decision-making, and missing otherwise fruitful opportunities.
Making decisions quickly translates to better opportunities, higher financial rewards, and more overall happiness in life every day.
That’s why you might find me using a pendulum, rolling the dice, or even flipping a coin to make a decision quickly and move on.
Those who make decisions rapidly may make more mistakes than their painstaking peers, about 2% more on average.
If you ask me? It’s worth that two percent margin to get more out of each drop of life.
