Avoid excessive reasoning

Recipe for a Happy Print Shop – Part 2 of 8

Sometimes good ideas are counterintuitive.

Conventional wisdom tells us to carefully analyze things until we’re absolutely sure that we’re going to make the right decision.

But waiting until you’re ‘absolutely sure’ will slow you down, frustrate your co-workers, drive your spouse crazy, and cause you to miss some good opportunities.

Most of us want to avoid the stigma of making a bad decision, and thus we allow the possibility of future problems to prevent present improvements.

You will simplify your life when you give up excessive reasoning, admit you don’t know everything, and don’t worry about it. One of the secrets of my success has been the ability to move faster than my competitors. One of the ways I do this is to make a decision and get going with a new idea as soon as I know it is 80% or 90% right. Innovation is always a good thing, but innovating faster is better.

This process took a long time to develop in my life, but it has been worth it. Do you ever feel mentally worn out?

Maybe now is the time you should begin avoiding excessive reasoning.
