Stop making decisions and start making commitments. Though you need to decide to do the things that are important to you, you also need to schedule them into your life. Deciding is not enough if you don’t know when you will take the required actions, and stay committed to the proposed timeline. We all have things that are important to us, like:
“I really want to scale my business.”
“I really want to lose 40 pounds.”
“I really want to get started on XYZ.”
Unfortunately, most of us hope that we’ll have the willpower and motivation to make the right decisions each day. Rather than hoping that I’ll make the right decisions each day, I’ve found more success by scheduling the things that are important to me. If you sit back and hope that you’ll be able to make the right decisions each day, then you will certainly fall victim to decision fatigue and a lack of willpower.
