Seth’s Blog: The Time/Decision Gap

(The link to the original blog is here)

Six years ago, I wrote, “You don’t need more time, you just need to decide.”

Easy to say, but hard to embrace.

Here’s what I meant:

Deciding is difficult, because decisions bring responsibility. It’s better to not decide, the lizard brain says.

How to not decide?

Ask for more time.

If you have more time, you can move away from the decision. Maybe someone else will make it for you. Maybe it won’t need to be made at all.

But…

That’s our work.

We don’t make stuff as much as we make decisions.
