More Time

A recent post from Seth Godin stated the case against taking too long to make decisions.

Taking too long robs you of your most valuable resource - time itself. Unless you're going to get more information to base your decision on, waiting too long just increases the anxiety surrounding the decision you need to make.

I'd add that taking too long robs you of an inspired decision. Inspiration wanes with time. It also robs you of focus and, if anything, it makes things worse. It exacerbates bad situations.

If you have the information you need, if you've bounced the idea off people you respect, and if you have other things to do with your time, why wait?
