Startup CEO decision making and the Most Important Thing

(Note: MIT means Most Important Thing)

There is one exception to the velocity rule: decisions that are not in the MIT path. My instinct used to be to make all decisions quickly. What I’ve learned the hard way is to ignore non-crucial decisions. If they are not MIT, they can either wait or be decided on by someone else. Making decisions fast and well takes a lot of effort, focus and energy – don’t waste it on unimportant things. You will be surprised how many things seem to work themselves out when you ignore them; if they come back to you again, they will have become more important, you will have had more time to collect more data and can make the correct (and swift) decision at that time.
