Leaders' Jolt! - The Must-Add to Your Daily Workout

Do you struggle with decisions? Well I did, until I ceased agonizing over them.  Used to be I'd spend undue amounts of time mulling aspects of situations before I made up my mind.  Often these examinations were just another excuse to avoid the inevitable - that I would have to decide one way or the other.

But that has changed.  Today I make decisions, small ones, large ones, lots of them and very quickly.  I work on me to make decisions.  Although not all my decisions have been good ones, its not often that I am displeased with them either.  What's interesting is that a high percent are actually pretty good decisions indeed when I look back on them!  The not so good ones - well they were not good and I learned from them.  The more decisions I made the better I got at making good ones.  That's the key.  We learn as we go.

Decisioning - Made Easy

forums

Something thats helped propel my decision making is I have a fairly clear picture of what I would like to accomplish overall as a person and make an effort to aim my daily activities at that.  So this vision/purpose for my life and how it fits in my daily business and personal activities helps drive what my decisions are in general. Its written into my personal and business mission statements and I make an effort to look at it daily.  With that its easier to pull the trigger on most occasions requiring that I make one decision or the other.  

If you have trouble making up your mind or agonize too much over it, then do what I do -- "decide" on your purpose for being and as they say, how you would want your obituary to read.  Remind yourself of that everyday and let it guide how you make your mind up.  Wishing you the very best always.

Working With Youth

This week we bring you a couple of articles directed at youth population.  One is results of a study that finds possible relationship between lowered drinking age and high school drop-out.  

Also we introduce you to a webinar on youth workforce development to discuss training, work, and internship development strategies for hard-to-reach youth.  Plus several new articles, you are bound to find something you can use.  Have a great rest of this week and next.
