Quick! Which are more crucial, short or long term decisions? Go!
BOTH! Shorter term decisions affect your day-to-day and are called tactical decisions. Longer term decision-making affects your strategy and vision and are strategic decisions.
Make sure to differentiate between these two types of decisions when planning work for your organization, so you know how to focus on each without getting overwhelmed.
- You won’t get bogged down by the tactical decisions, because you’ll see that they will not make any drastic changes.
- You’ll be able to spend more time thinking through the strategic decisions, because they are more impactful in the long run.
