There’s a lot to unpack in these three words. For starters, approach a situation or problem with intention and thoughtfulness. Give adequate consideration to alternatives and potential consequences. That said, be aware of the “analysis paralysis” trap, which leads to indecision and procrastination. As leaders, we sometimes must make decisions based on imperfect or incomplete information. Be decisive and take action — or deliberately choose not to take action. Either way, check the box and move on to the next issue you face.
