Do you need to make an important decision in the face of uncertainties?
Here's a winning strategy: Many of the financial gurus on TV and the web say we're entering a period of great uncertainty. And many recommend we take action and adopt new lifestyles based on living on less.
This can be a tough decision. W. Clement Stone, who built an insurance empire worth hundreds of millions dollars during and just after the Great Depression, had his sales staff recite the phrase, "Do it now" again and again at the start of each workday.
Why did this remarkable millionaire do this?
Because he realized that in both good and tough times, there
can be an enormous cost of putting things off while you think, plan,
and analyze a situation.
Stone was pro action. He continuously reminded his staff that they were only rewarded for results—for blasting through their negative assumptions and just taking action.
Once you have enough data to make a decision, Stone would tell you to just do it—immediately. And then to take action.
Too often, many people delay making decisions because they're uncertain it is the RIGHT decision. But in times like today, not deciding on an action plan could have some very negative consequences.
The secret, when faced with ambiguity and unknowns, is to break free of the cement of fear and at least take a step in the most promising direction. If you have no data to rely on in making your decision, look to your own personal experience and intuition.
Then just keep your eyes and ears open, pay attention, and honestly analyze what's happening. Is your decision promising? If it turns out to be the wrong one, take the most promising corrective action. Stay flexible, aware, and in action.
The remarkable self-made millionaires I've worked with over the past 36 years would tell you this: When in doubt, act boldly, as if it is impossible to fail.
How can they say this? Because experience has taught them that moving toward success is NOT a straight line, and failure is NOT an acceptable option. They move toward success by making a series of decisions followed by actions. and then new corrective decisions and new actions until finally they arrive at their desired state—or something even better.
In essence, these men and women have developed the ability to cut through any confusion and focus their mind on making decisions, taking action, paying attention, and doing what then proves promising.
