054: Decision Making
on Deadline Day
It’s Deadline Day for one of the books I’ve been working on, I started working on the book more than a year ago, yet there are things that I know now that I might not have known at any point during the creation of the book.
So I made some tweaks and changes.
I didn’t ask anyone, I just did them.
Most were tiny little things that will add tiny bits of enjoyment to the readers.
But one of the changes was bolder. I made the call, and spent the time to make the change. If tomorrow’s email is not titled ‘Big Mistake’ then you’ll know the change paid off.
If I waited for permission, I would miss the deadline so I called it.
My Name’s the one on the cover, so I’ll take the risk. Maybe I’m dramatizing, It’s not really that big of a risk other than the hours I spent that would be wasted if the change is not accepted. I still have a ‘safe’ version.
I’m just writing to tell you I’m happy with my deadline day decision.
How would you rate your decision-making?
And is it an asset or a liability in the work you’re doing?
You don’t have to answer in public, these questions are more like journal prompts.
A lot of my reading this year is centered around improving my decision-making because it’s the kind of thing that affects everything.
ps: if you email me a picture of Fabio the Lion that you made, I’ll add it to this post (or a future post) with a credit and a link to you.
