Decision-making, daily discipline and failure

I’m kind of an on-again/off-again John Maxwell fan, but this article makes a pretty powerful statement:

Inability to make decisions is one of the principal reasons executives fail. Deficiency in decision-making ranks much higher than lack of specific knowledge or technical know-how as an indicator of leadership failure…Successful people make the right decisions early and manage them daily.

Maxwell goes on to say some really powerful things that link decision-making with daily discipline.  Good stuff.  Someone wise once told me that a good decision made now is often better than a great decision made too late.

Thanks for linking to my blog! You know, I've been writing for the print magazine, "Today's Pastor."

I just submitted an article (for publication early next year) on ways to beat procrastination...

Jason, thanks for stopping by! I've been reading your blog for quite a while and have really enjoyed your appearances on TPN's Productivity Show, etc. Actually, your feed disappeared for a while from my feed-reader (I'm not sure why). This post on Maxwell's article is one of the first new ones I'd gotten in a while.

I didn't realize that you also did writing other writing on the side; I'll have to check out that issue when it's out.

Take care.z
