To build on yesterday, which was about early identification of long-term behavior patterns, today let’s look at choosing how to act in the moment. Because if you get that right, long-term behavior patterns automatically become much, much better.
You don’t just want to make good decisions in the moment. You want to make good decisions as quickly as possible. The longer it takes to think and decide what to do, the more chances to doubt yourself and make it more complex than necessary.
Ask yourself in the moment, “What is the most immediate, relevant, and obvious decision?” Most of the time that will be your best answer. Act on it. You can always adjust to improve it later. The decision you need to make is usually obvious. It’s the action required that slows you down from making it.
Improve your decision-making by executing the obvious and speeding up the process. You know what to do. Get moving.
Embrace the chase. Do the work.
