Cut Out Options

In editing, you must cut unhelpful words.

In business, you must cut unhelpful goals, team members, clients, ideas…options.

It’s wrenching, at times.

Leading a business, or a life, means making good decisions.

“Decide” comes from the Latin decidere, literally “to cut off”.

Make peace with that.

Every decision cuts you off from all other options.

For an INTP, like me, that can be a tough pill.

But I must make peace with it.

We can only go in one direction anyway.

To cut options is the only option we have.
