As leaders, we need to step up and do what needs to be done. It’s okay to feel fear—courage involves being afraid but still doing something anyway.
But fear is also a check on bad ideas. Don’t dismiss it—consider where it is coming from and use that insight to guide you to making better decisions.
What do you do to make sure your choices are good ones?
You might make pro-and-con lists. You might bring in a few trusted people to be your sounding boards. You might draft that email and then sleep on it before hitting send. You might read up on what the experts suggest.
It’s okay to “go with your gut,” but you will have a better chance of success if you also give your brain (and often the brains of others) an opportunity to weigh-in, as well.
