How to prioritise what matters

* From Farnam Street

There are two types of decision: Irreversible and inconsequential

The latter are a great training ground for decision-making. Mistakes don’t hurt, so you can delegate and give your team opportunities to make their own decisions.

The former require time, effort and focus.

Before making irreversible decisions, spend time gather evidence and information.

Take as long as possible to make up your mind.

Make irreversible decision-making the No. 1 priority on your to-do list.

Leave the inconsequential decisions to others.
