If you know how you are going to decide, your decisions will be more thoughtful, intentional, and efficient.

For those of you who know me you will know that my impatience can be both my towering strength and the source of much annoyance for those around me! So when it was time for us to buy our new place we knew that we had to decide just how we were going to decide.

42 days after deciding it was time to start looking for a new place, we picked up the keys and walked through the door to our new home, knowing we had absolutely made the right decision and it didn't feel the slightest bit rushed.

The key? (I know, bad pun...) we had already decided just how we were going to decide.  I have been designing my weekend morning walks around the streets where we might want to live. We gave our realtor a map with the precise zone where we wanted to buy, because an essential factor was that our three girls could all easily walk to school. We knew our must-have and nice-to-have-features, and how much work and money we wanted to invest. Surprisingly, COVID lockdown actually also helped us, because there has been a boom of 3D modeled houses that allow for virtual tours using technology like Matterport that really make you feel like you are wandering around, getting closer to details, and even letting you measure every single dimension! All of this helped us be prepared.

Despite setting a new record for our realtor as his fastest ever close, we actually were in no rush. That allowed us to not feel pressured, but once we saw our new place, we knew it was quite special and we wanted to see if we could get it. 

I see thousands of wasted hours and painful amounts of dollars squandered on ineffective decision making. Meetings where no-one is quite clear if this is a debate or a point of conclusion, or just how to arrive at a decision. Individual leaders who are duplicating or dropping key work because there is confusion who is making the decisions. All of this contributes to what I call Decision Fatigue. If you want to receive my Decision Deciphering Guide for use with your Leadership Team - please reply with a challenge you are currently facing with decisions in your company and I'll send it to you as a gift from me.

Now, as we begin our remodel, if you want to know how quickly we bought a complete set of appliances, bathroom fittings, and tile(s)...we followed just the same approach saving us hours of indecision and helping sales associates in the stores we visited get an unexpected boost to their commission bonuses in rapid time!

Now maybe next week's VAL-uable Insights will be the story behind what exactly we are going to do with our four newly acquired giant chandeliers!

To your efficient decisions this week!

Dedicated to growing your business,

Val
