Decisiveness vs. Procrastination
The ability to recognize key factors and finalize difficult decisions.
Decisiveness in the home includes:
· Firmly establishing the family commitment to good character by forming habits based on desired qualities.
· Discussing with each other the decisions that need to be finalized to avoid making rash choices based on the impulse of the moment.
· Making decisions based on a commitment to character vs. popular opinion.
· Keeping each other accountable to not procrastinate.
· not look back.
· do what I say.
· make the right decision and stick to it.
· look at things from more than one point of view before making up my mind.
· not give in to peer pressure.
Rewards of Decisiveness
Obtaining wise counsel from many before finalizing a decision will ensure its success.
Procrastination of decision making often results in confusion and wasted time; when families base decisions on previous commitments, they will have greater confidence in their decisions.
