Decisions Decisions Decisions

Decisions1I was reflecting this week that in my role at school as a Deputy Principal I am required to make a lot of decisions on a daily basis. Sometimes I am provided all the necessary background information to make the proper decision, other times I am expected to make a decision with very little or limited background information. Sometimes the decision must be made immediately and there is no time to gather further background information, other times I have the opportunity to investigate and give the decision the proper time it deserves. I make a lot of decisions on a daily basis, and no matter what happens, there will always be those who agree with my decisions, and those who disagree with my decision. And guess what, I even make wrong decisions.

Here some thoughts that I have gathered and will reflect on this week.

  1. If everyone agrees with your decision, then it’s probably not the best decision.
  2. If everyone disagrees with your decisions, then it’s definitely not the best decision.
  3. If some agree and some disagree with your decision, then you’ve probably made the right decision.
  4. Try to listen and ask a lot of questions; the more information I have the better.
  5. Focus on making decisions that will effect the greatest good for students and community.
  6. Accepting the reality that each decision won’t be well received by everyone, nor will it be hated by everyone.

What do you think?
