Hill tells us that the ability to make decisions quickly is essential to our success. Everyone knows there will never be a time when everything is exactly right to start any venture, whether that is going on holidays or starting a business.
When organising a trip we need to decide where we want to go, when we want to go, how much it will cost and how we will finance it. Then we can take the first step and book the flights and accommodation. We can take care of the rest later.
Once we have taken the first step we can work out everything as necessary.
The same is true with starting a business.
We need skills to run a business, even a network marketing business, but we don’t need to have all the skills when we start. We can learn those skills later.
All we need to know is what we have to do, how much will it cost, how much money can we make and how do we get started. If we’re happy with those details, we make a decision to get started and we can learn the rest as we go along.
This doesn’t mean that we should make rash decisions. We need to get the basic facts.
I’ve often found that if I dillied and dallied about making a decision the opportunity passed and I missed out. This is something I still struggle with from time to time so this chapter is a timely reminder which, thanks to MFF and our study of T&GR, I am reminded of regularly.
