Clarity of Mind Enables Good Judgment and Decision Making

As a leader, it is essential to be clear—clear about your personal purpose, your company’s vision and strategic direction, your motives and intentions, your thoughts and emotions, and your expectations for yourself and others. Essentially, when I talk about clarity, it applies to everything, both internally and in the world at large. Being clear is closely linked to being aware of what is going on within you and around you.

Being clear allows you to make better decisions. You are also more likely to be able to identify opportunities for your business and to discard proposals that are not in line with your vision. After all, a great opportunity that doesn’t fit your strategy isn’t a great opportunity for you. It will merely cause you to take your eye off the ball and may cause you to spread your resources, including people, time, and money, too thinly. Being clear means too that you are better able to determine who will be the most appropriate strategic partners for your business. It enables you to be proactive and to resist being driven by short-term goals or results at the expense of sustainable outcomes. When making decisions, it’s important to know what is driving the decision. The clearer you are, the better you will be able to determine whether a decision is sound or based on any of the five hindrances. You will be completely aware if it is based on your purpose and strategy or on someone else’s.

    What a timely post!Some personal ‘stuggling’ today alerted me to focus on clarity of intent…to clarify with awareness…I see that the ‘successes’ I did achieve came from clarifying and helped turn around a potentially disempowering day.
