If you wait to do everything until you’re sure it’s right,
you’ll probably never do much of anything.

Be willing to make decisions.
That’s the most important quality in a good leader.
Don’t fall victim to what I call
the Ready-Aim-Aim-Aim Syndrome.
You must be willing to fire.

Decide. You won’t have to make the decision instantly and without thought. You will need to make the decision eventually. If it is time, just take a deep breath, remember that perfection is for amateurs (unless you’re a heart surgeon), glance once more at the options and the available information, and DECIDE!
