Tempo and timing is everything!

People are different. We all have a tempo that makes us comfortable. The time it takes to collect necessary information, discuss the subject with others and then decide is different. I use a quick style. I don’t like the feeling when the decision is like: ”We’ll wait because we’re not ready…” and to me those times feels like ”until the moon falls down” which is forever. With my style of making decisions fast you also need to be able to change and to do it with grace. Changing my mind and position is not difficult at all.

I suppose other people, my opposite, think that changing a decision by taking it back is awful. That is why they need to wait another week to make the decision in the first place. I can see advantages with their way also. Their decisions are well thought of.

The winner is the one who can sometimes use a quick style and sometimes do a slow. That is to adopt to current situation. That is timing to me. Timing is essential.

I wish I could be better to trust other peoples judgement when they decide to wait. I also think in general that managers gain a lot if they are on the quicker side.
