“More opportunities slip by without a decision to act on them than are lost any other way. Sure, you may get it wrong from time to time. You may need to course correct and redouble your efforts. But it is still more likely that you will lose the opportunity altogether by doing nothing, by waiting to decide and failing to act.“ J Loren Norris
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DECIDE SOMETHING ISN’T WORKING AND MOVE ON?
One of the marks of a solid leader is the ability to make decisions.
- Risk Aware
There was an old phrase which came up frequently when I played billiards competitively. “Think long. Think wrong.” Basically it was a reminder that at this level, you have enough insight, wisdom, experience and intuition to make a decision. It is not always the case that more data will change your decision. If you have been here before you should be confident enough to trust your gut.
“A double minded man is like a wave of the sea - tossed about by every other idea.” Leaders need to know that a decision is a decision. Next should follow action, commitment and results. There should be no need to re-decide, second guess or ask for further opinion after the decision is made.
“There is safety in numbers. There is wisdom in a multitude of counselors.” Making a big decision with large implications and ramifications should not be taken lightly. Ask for guidance, seek counsel, weigh the cost vs benefits and know the projected outcome before you decide. The longer you have been in the role you are making a decision about, the more of those deciding factors are already second nature. So count the cost, then decide and act.
More opportunities slip by without a decision to act on them than are lost any other way. Sure, you may get it wrong from time to time. You may need to course correct and redouble your efforts. But it is still more likely that you will lose the opportunity altogether by doing nothing, by waiting to decide and failing to act.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
