Being decisive is simply the most rational way to take on any problem.
Decisiveness means having the ability to decide with speed and clarity.
The best decision is the best one you can make with the information available at the time.
Simply need to make a decision with the faulty information at hand and move forward. Waiting longer is just delaying the inevitable, so you must decide even in the face of uncertainty.
Most of the decisions you face will not have huge repercussions for mistakes.
Often you will face greater damages by making no decision at all then by making a bad one.
You can learn and practice the skill of making firm decisions quickly.
Decisiveness is similar to a feeling of confidence, strength and assuredness.

Almost no popular self-help authors are going to have had the experience of pursuing a dream (like becoming an author) and not having it eventually work out.
Understanding reality means that you have to accept that some of your dreams won’t come true just because you work hard enough, be creative enough or go to enough seminars. Don’t base your decisions on a false model of reality.
When pursuing a dream you have the underlying assumption that when you reach it you will be happy. That is false.
Achieving goals doesn’t make you happy because achievements on their own hold no lasting emotional value. Only growth, fulfilment and passion has value.
