Easier than maybe

“Always” and “never” are easier than “maybe”.

“Maybe” requires a decision, introduces ambiguity. Most of our decisions start as “maybes” (hence the need for a decision). It can help to have a process for deciding, some criteria or a set of rules to avoid the effort of re-deciding next time you’re faced with a similar situation.

“Maybe” can so often become “If and when I feel like it,” which might work for the occasional donut, but doesn’t work for most things inside your organisation.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommended resources...
