The riddle has been around for ages:
“Five frogs sit on a log. Four decide to jump in. How many are left?”
If you respond the same way I did, the first time I heard this riddle, you would say “one.”
But the correct answer is “five.” There is a big difference between deciding and doing. A big difference.
Do you make big decisions in your business? It doesn’t mean it is getting done. In fact, making a continuous stream of big decisions is the easiest way to do nothing at all. Just make a decision and when the pressure surmounts to take action, make a new decision.
Are you a decider or a doer? You decide – scratch that, you do.
