This past week we had a great opportunity to get some questions answered by an incredible man who demanded and commanded his successes. Of course I am talking about Pejman Ghadimi. I've read all of the questions asked and read the answers twice. There is a very obvious pattern in PG's answers and they are very revealing as to his nature. I suspect that in some ways he is an innate decision maker. It doesn't have to be born in us, some need to seek out the knowledge and experiences that can form this trait so that we can properly cultivate it and integrate it into our lives and businesses. One of the most frustrating, and disappointing, traits I see in what I read in online communities are the excuses for not doing something, or not taking action. When we examine the manner and style of PG's answers you see four elements that are crucial to decision making and it comes out in his writing here over the past week. All of his answers, everyone, were short, sharp, focused, and deliberate. You can tell he didn't have to think about the answers. You can tell he had the information needed to respond immediately available. These traits are responsible for him getting things done. As you go into business, no matter if it's the first minute, everything requires quick prepared responses so that you can make decisions efficiently, not over thinking them, and on the fly. The faster you develop the skill to take action immediately you will find that you are forced to be making decisions throughout the day. Everything is based on decisions and the faster you can make them the faster your life and your business moves. This is where it gets ugly for many of you and it's because you are not skilled at making decisions so instead of developing that skill you instead make the one decision you should never make, you tell yourself any of the following, all of which are decisions to not make a decision: I'm not ready to... I don't know how to... I need money first for... I'm still looking at/for/into... There's too much competition to/for/in... I don't know if... What if... I'm still not... I've never... etc., etc., etc. I dare you all to become the best damn decision makers.
