Leadership requires that you are able to make key decisions effectively. Decisiveness then simply means being the leader of your own life. Decisiveness is both a skill you can build and an internal state you can summon when you need it.
My word for this weeks Ben Franklin challenge is decisiveness. At the beginning of the week I questioned why I even picked this as a virtue to observe and improve on. Now the week is rounding up I have learnt more about my relationship with decisiveness and the importance of strengthening this virtue in my own life. Not making a decision is a decision.
Decisiveness means coming to a firm conclusion quickly and effectively. As simple as that definition is, there is immense power in decisions. Decisions are the building blocks of life. Decisions satisfy our cravings. Decisions find us the fastest route to work. Decisions guide us through difficult times in life. We believe that the right decision is the one that is the best option for you. It’s a healthy mix of observing, reflecting, and retrieving feedback.
