that a dream can be achieved.

He inspires the power and energy to get it done.”

Leaders Need To Be Decisive

Coach Mike Krzyzewski (Coach K), Duke

“The truth is that many people set rules to keep from making decisions. Not me. I don’t want to be a manager or a dictator. I want to be a leader—and leadership is ongoing, adjustable, flexible, and dynamic. As such, leaders have to maintain a certain amount of discretion.”

– Coach Mike Krzyzewski


The way to develop decisiveness is to start right where you are, with the very next question you face”  –  Napoleon Hill

“Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women. Almost any decision is better than no decision at all.” – Brian Tracy

“If I had to sum up in a word what makes a good manager, I’d say decisiveness. You can use the fanciest computers to gather the numbers, but in the end you have to set a timetable and act.”  – Lee Iacocca

“The percentage of mistakes in quick decisions is no greater than in long-drawn-out vacillation, and the effect of decisiveness itself ‘makes things go’ and creates confidence”  – Anne O’Hare McCormick


Decisiveness- a great way to defeat procrasination!
