Are your decisions supported this effectively?

How to make a good decision that others will follow is a vital skill when it comes to leading a family, a business or even a country.

Mark and I were watching this video recently and I found myself thinking how good decisions are easily modelled and copied if people understand the purpose.

Watch the man in the blue shorts who rushes in then stops to watch in order to gain a bit more understanding before he can actually help.

What I love about this is that he is keen to help but he has to watch ‘how’ it is being done. He has already decided it is the right thing to do and even if he does not have the skills he is there ready to learn. Imagine if you could create teams, families and whole communities like that.


  • What happens in between the problem being recognised and decision made?
  • Then what happens?
  • How often in your business or your family are you able to communicate a decision so that others follow?


This is a great example:

It is not always about what you say but as much about what you do.

I am always fascinated to work with leaders who want others to listen more effectively and yet they profess not to have time to listen to.


Please share below your thoughts, who thinks differently to me?

Thanks for listening

  1. Yes sometimes it is a skill or piece of information that is missing, but by listening to yourself you know what you need in order to make that decision. Didn’t they do a great job!

  2. This is a wonderful example, as you say, of leadership, purpose, taking action. How satisfying that event must have been for those who made the decision to act. We can find satisfaction in life when our behaviours are aligned with a clear sense of purpose. When, as in this video, our purpose is greater than ourselves, we find even greater satisfaction. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts James it certainly is that moment afterwards when you reflect on something that has just happened when you suddendly realise how momentus that moment just was.
