What problem do you solve? 

Richard will help business owners solve the problem of decision making and simplify it.

Show Notes:

  • Richard’s message is to stop saying the word “Whatever” because you come across as a slacker. You also are not making a decision and every decision matters even the small ones.
  • When you are faced with a decision – make it.
  • Research shows that the decision you would make in the first few minutes is usually also the decision you would make 2 weeks later so go ahead and make the decision instead of delaying.
  • Gut decisions are okay as long as you a very familiar with a topic. You can also use pros and cons or an algorithm such as if this then that.
  • Do not let your emotions be a part of your decision-making. Be self-aware of your feelings.
  • You need to clarify your intentions. If you have the clarification it makes your decisions easier.
  • Sometimes, it can be very efficient to make the same decision.
  • Richard’s book is Never Say Whatever: How Small Decisions Make a Big Difference
