For many, when confronted with a decision, an automatic sense of urgency kicks in. The reality is that even the most important decisions that demand quick response still allow you time to process and evaluate. The clock in our head ticks much quicker than the one on the wall. Take a deep breath, collect yourself, now evaluate the situation. Tell me you can’t do that in less than thirty seconds? Imagine what you can do with a few minutes.
If you want to become a better decision-maker, focus on the one thing that can benefit any goal you’re chasing: patience. With patience comes wisdom. With wisdom comes experience. With experience, you have the capacity to visualize the pros and cons of anything that comes up.
