(vs. Procrastination)

Processing information and finalizing difficult decisions

To practice Decisiveness I will:

You've heard the idioms: 'clear cut', 'cut and dried', and 'to cut a deal'. These are all decisive statements and should not be confused with rash decisions or snap reactions. Decisiveness is knowing what facts are important to consider in making a decision, knowing the right decision to make and taking responsibility to see that decision through to completion. A decision without action is not really a decision. Having good character is a sure foundation for being able to process information into sound decisions.

This month exercise your decisiveness and make solid, clear-cut decisions.
