The 24 Hour Rule

Major throwback moment here way back to the 70s.

Have you ever heard the song "Easy" by The Commodores?  The vibe going on in the song perfectly captures the vibe of being "Easy like Sunday morning".

There can be a ton of variables when you're looking at a new piece of technology for your business and it can all get pretty overwhelming pretty fast. 

When selecting a new piece of technology it's important to not get caught up in the moment.  Making a rash decision just to get through a moment is not always the best way to move forward.

With that said, a friend of mine had a rule personal rule that I dubbed.

The 24 Hour Rule.

The 24 Hour Rule basically works like so…  Before making a key decision anyone involved in the decision can invoke the 24 Hour Rule.  When invoked no decision will be made for at least 24 hours.  This gives everyone involved some time to reflect and assess.

Over the years I've continued to invoke the rule whenever necessary.

Sometimes I come back and go with the decision discussed.  Other times I choose a different path and sometimes I may decide to do nothing at all (yep, it's true).

It's important at times to not get caught up in the moment.

It’s in the moment when we need step back, take a breath, and be Easy like Sunday morning.
