What's your Decision-Making Tempo?

Do you tend to make decisions too quickly, or not quickly enough?
Do you tend to step into action too soon, or not soon enough?
How do you determine when the time for these things is the right time?

We often assume that the only relevant decision-making variables are the What and the Why (and to a lesser extent the Who and the Where).

But what about the When?

Deciding too soon forces you to omit some potentially decision-changing information into the process. But not deciding soon enough has its own set of implications. Acting too quickly might cause you to unnecessarily misstep, but not stepping into action quickly enough will likely get you left behind.

Pick an issue you're working on and consider if the tempo of your decision-making is optimal. Modify your actions accordingly.
