Another quote from Emerson. "An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory." I love that! My own schtick is "Less talk, more work." I've noticed the amount of time spent in meetings and discussions on how things should be done far outweighs the benefits of simple action. Everyone is so worried about being responsible for decision making that instead of being leaders they make all decisions seem like a team vote.
Someone has to take charge. There is nothing wrong with saying "I am the boss and/or the parent!!!" Take a stand. Defend your beliefs and actions. Some people spend longer explaining why they CAN'T do something than it would have taken to just do it. As Nike says, "Just Do It." But do what is right. As long as you do that you really can't make a mistake. And if you do then you start over. But for God sake make a DECISION.
That goes for your personal life as well. Instead of agonizing over issues take a step forward. It is okay to apologize. I do it all the time! Life is short. "Just Do It."
