Entrepreneurs have to make decisions. You are a decision procrastinator if you put off decisions because you’re worried about the outcome, you don’t want to be accountable, or you don’t know what to choose. To make the decision easier, view it as an objective outsider, break the decision down, imagine worst-case scenarios to make you less afraid of the likely outcomes, and finally, follow your instinct.

Key Takeaways:

  • The first step is recognizing if you’re a “decision procrastinator” in the first place. All of us are procrastinators in some capacity; you’ve likely delayed the completion of various assignments in your education or work history, or put off making a difficult phone call until the last minute.
  • Sometimes, procrastination can be a useful tool. For example, you may want to delay your decision until you’ve gathered more data about the issue.
  • If you find that you’re consistently relying on harmful or destructive procrastination strategies in your decision-making, there are some strategies that can help you overcome that tendency
