Make a Decision: Why It's Most Important That You DecideJan 18, 2024
“It’s more important that you decide, than it is what you decide.”
It’s a new year. A clean slate. A fresh start. It’s not uncommon for independent contractors to look around where they work and wonder, “Am I with the right company? Could I get a better deal somewhere else? Do I stay or do I go?”
And what happens when you get up on the fence without a clear direction forward? That’s right, nothing happens! Prospecting grinds to a halt, and production follows. Until you make a decision and get down from the fence, it’s nothing but crickets.
Changing companies is a big decision with long-term consequences, and the more time spent researching and shopping and dithering, the more steps backward you are likely to take. While it’s important to make a fully informed decision, it’s just as important to actually make a decision.
You’ve heard the cliches about the grass always being greener on the other side of the hill. That’s because it gets more water over there. You may even have heard that yes it’s greener but it’s twice as hard to mow. The real truth is that it just looks greener until the moment you stop looking.
You can always find a better deal… until the moment you stop looking. And that applies to a lot of things in life as well
Instead of asking, “Do I stay with what I have or do I seek greener pastures?” Ask yourself, “Have I made the most of what I already have right where I am now?” There’s a lot to be said for continuity and loyalty.
In the end, there may be legitimate and compelling reasons to move your business from one company to another, but they are usually outweighed by the value of continuity and loyalty.
What matters is knowing that while you are undecided, nothing happens.
And whenever you make a move it takes a while, and sometimes longer, a lot longer, to regain your momentum.
