Why impact and optionality matter for decision speed

Use my easy-to-implement framework to figure out when to slow down and when to speed up your decisions.

Why this topic matters

Making decisions too quickly can be a disaster. But so can making decisions too slowly, getting caught in an endless loop of analysis that brings on insignificant and incremental informational gains. Having the frameworks to figure out when to slow down your decisions and when to speed up them up offers a key competitive advantage, as well as more peace of mind!
