Decision Paralysis

I recently subscribed to Fast Company magazine; I wanted to give it a good look, and my library doesn’t carry it (yet). It costs $4.99 on the newsstand, or you can subscribe for a year for $10. No brainer.In the November issue, Dan and Chip Heath discuss how having too many choices can lead to decision-making paralysis. They suggest simplifying your overall strategy so that the strategy can guide decision-making:

you don’t need to embrace simplicity just so your people can comprehend your message. The point of simplicity is more fundamental: Simplicity allows people to act.  

It’s an interesting idea. Go RTWT (it’s short!).
