9 Habits that Lead to Bad Business Decisions


It is not only important that you develop good habits that help you to achieve success, but also that you are aware of the poor habits that lead to bad decisions. You can avoid many of the major pitfalls and failures by knowing what types of habits to shy away from. Here is a look at the key takeaways from this infographic.

1) Putting Off Deadlines
Being lazy is something that is natural for many people and sometimes unavoidable, but it is not a habit that you want to get into. People that are lazy and have these type of habits are those that are sloppy with their work and are not willing to put in the effort that it takes to move ahead. Many people that are lazy simply dwell on the past and think that they can get by on work that has been done in the past alone. It is difficult to make good decisions if you are too lazy to put in the effort required.

2) Foresight
Another bad habit that is also connected to poor decisions is the inability to anticipate the unexpected. In order to make the best decisions you need to have some foresight and know what will be happening in the future. The inability to see ahead and be able to plan ahead will result in decisions being made that are not in the best interest of the desired goal. If you are willing to take the time to think about what could possibly go wrong, you have the ability to prepare ahead of time and make changes that are for the best. If you are simply just decided about the decision that you are making and don’t take the time to consider the downsides, this is a habit that could lead to problems.

3) Indecisiveness
If you are one of the many people that simply has a hard time making any type of decision, this is a habit that you need to put an end to. You need to be able to learn the importance of making timely decisions and sticking to them. You can’t just procrastinate and keep putting it off indefinitely. This is not the key to making decisions that are most successful. The best decisions are ones that you come to early on and have confidence in.

These are habits that you need to look to avoid if you are trying to make decisions that are seen as the best.
