Certainty and confidence
Uncertainty. When decisions have not been taken, for whatever reason, we are left wondering what will happen? This circumstance, often described as “being in limbo”, creates a whole series of issues as far as making progress is concerned.
The most significant loss is that of confidence. Confidence is based on certainty, on decisions, and knowing that a plan exists to reach towards a goal.
Another by-product is a loss of initiative on the part of the people and teams who have to work together to make things happen. In business this can lead to paralysis and eventually the loss of the business.
As we approach our annual midsummer holiday let’s all take a close look at ourselves, the businesses we work with, and our community and resolve to assist in getting clarity on what is really required to make each of those parts successful.
Let’s change uncertainty into certainty and inaction into action!
“The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.” — Ursula LeGuin
