Due to globalization, the world has become extremely competitive, Timeliness and good decision making are essential. Let's go.

1. First, be honest with yourself when making an analysis. Don't ignore inconvenient truths as justification for inaction. Keep in mind everyone starts from scratch. So place your ego on the back burner.

2. Be sure to probe all available resources and be diligent about getting answers. We don't know what we don't know, but ultimately we can get the ball moving forward by tapping into available information technology or an experienced professional.

3. Remember that the first answer is seldom the best answer. Always look beyond what is obvious to ensure you haven't missed something. It's also a good idea to build a team of well-trusted advisors to vet each problematic decision to ensure you're on the right track.

4. Don't wait too long to come to a decision. Once you have studied the problem and feel confident in the solution act on it.

5. Use proactive thought processes.

Ask yourself what is the desired result. Then visualize what would success look like. Before you judge these steps as simplistic. Try them.
