How do you deal with uncertainty?
How do you perceive it?
In an ideal world, we would all be able to gather all the information in detail, have the time to analyse it thoroughly before taking any decision.
This would allow to be totally cautious, efficient and performing in our decision making.
Unfortunately the outside world and conditions we experience are quite different.
First, it is never possible to gather all the information; some of it is not even rational and is linked with non tangible human, emotional or political aspects.
Second, you will never have time to gather it and analyse it in detail. There will always be a hidden part, an uncertainty in the middle of it...
How do you feel about this?
Are you perfectionist enough to feel bad about it?
Or are you comfortable with having a high level understanding and with acting from there?
In day to day life, there will always be more to it than you can perceive or understand. There will always be uncertainty. It is important to accept it and be cool about it.
Leadership is about getting around and deciding in complex and uncertain environments.
It’s about relying on your intuition, on all of your senses and abilities to do so.
It’s about accepting imperfection. About flowing with the elements.
And last but not least, it’s about acting, deciding, going for it, doing.
