Chapter 8 - Decision - The Mastery of Procrastination
The Dictionary states that Procrastination is to put off intentionally and habitually
the doing of something that should be done or to delay doing something until a
later time because you do not want to do it.
Hill states "INDECISION (or procrastination as the title of the chapter states) is a
habit which usually begins in youth. The habit takes on permanency as the youth
goes through grade school, high school, and even through college, without
DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE. The major weakness of all educational systems
is that they neither teach nor encourage the habit of DEFINITE DECISION."
If we have had the habit of procrastination or indecision all our lives and we join a
Network Marketing company, we must learn how to make decisions and act on those
decisions or our involvement in Network Marketing will be short lived and not very productive.
When we do not make a decision we are in fact making a decision by deciding we
are not going to do anything. In order to build a business we must move forward and
when we do nothing, we do not really stay in the same position, we actually move backwards.
Hill writes "DEFINITENESS OF DECISION always requires courage, sometimes very great courage."
Decisions do not always have to be major decisions. They can be just to call one more person today,
connect with a new person, offer a product to a new client, learn one more skill, practice one more skill, etc.
Even that little bit will eventually move you forward. It all depends on how fast you want to build your business.
Hill tells us "Those who reach DECISIONS promptly and definitely, know what they want, and generally
get it. The leaders in every walk of life DECIDE quickly, and firmly. That is the major reason why they are
leaders. The world has the habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show that he knows
where he is going."
A quote from Brandon Webb "A good decision executed quickly is better than a great one never executed."
