Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

Decision fatigue is a real thing – here’s how to move past it

I’m sure you’ve heard before that one of the key characteristics of great leaders is their ability to make informed decisions quickly

And if you’re a business owner, then you fully understand just how many decisions you need to make on a day-to-day basis. 

Whether it’s a small decision -- like how you want your email signature to look, or something larger, like whether or not to hire a team -- making decisions is not always easy

And I’ll be honest, even though I’ve honed my decision-making skills over the years, there are times where I simply just don’t want to make them.

Yes, sweet friend. Decision fatigue is a very real thing, and I’ve dealt with it a lot in my business over the years. 

So what do you do when you’re faced with making a decision that you just don’t feel like making -- especially when you don’t have a CEO to help guide you? And to take it one step further, does the fact that you struggle with making decisions make you inept as a leader?

In this episode, I explore this – along with the three specific things I do in my own business when I’ve got to make a call on something and all I want to do is pass the buck to someone else.

You’ll walk away with the tools to become a master decision maker (and troubleshooter), and make your next decision swiftly and confidently.
