YOU’VE GOT TO MOVE QUICKLY when a business or career opportunity comes your way or you’ll lose it. In his book, The Art of The Deal, Donald Trump writes, “It just goes to show that it pays to move quickly and decisively when the time is right.”
Trump showed the great deal he made for his home in Mara Largo, Florida. The seller had turned-down his original high bid. Some years later when the property hadn’t sold, Trump moved quickly with a much, lower offer. It was accepted.
High performing people like Trump aren’t just lucky. They’ve learned to intuitively act now. But that takes the ability to make decisions and I present various decision-making techniques in my book Your One-Minute Job Finding Coach.
One technique is a psychologist’s formula to think, plan, and act. Then don’t look back. THINK about the pros and cons of the situation. Based on the ramifications you’ve come up with, create a quick PLAN as to the best way for you to proceed. Then ACT NOW on your plan.
When you think…decide…plan…and act…. you’ll know when the time is right to move quickly.
