Darryl Bachmeier Aug 24, 2019 Strategy

For any person, decision making is one of the inseparable aspects of life. From waking up in the morning to going back to bed at night, almost every minute, we’re having to make decisions either consciously or subconsciously. One estimate shows we make 35,000 rational decisions in a single day on average. So needless to say decision-making encompasses a large part of our life. But all decisions are not the same. Something as simple as choosing breakfast has very little consequence compared to say making organizational decisions. Whatever you may have for breakfast, whatever the decision or choice might be, the stake is very low. But when you’re making an organizational decision, the company’s prospects, growth, profit, and any other major aspect may be in line, which makes the stakes of that decision significantly higher. And with higher stakes comes the higher dilemma of decision making. So how do you...

Darryl Bachmeier Aug 22, 2019 Success

Picture this. The birds are chirping, announcing the birth of a new day. The sun has already shone its warm rays over your bedroom window. So, it’s time to drag your butt out of your cozy bed. You start making your bed. Halfway through, you head over to the kitchen and place your coffee on the cooking stove so that it can be cooking as you finish making the bed. Instead of going back to the bedroom to finish making the bed, you start mopping the living area. A few minutes into it, you hear a familiar sound. Your baby is awake and is yelling for your attention. You drop the mop and get the baby. When you come from the baby’s room, you notice a cloud of smoke in the kitchen. Your coffee boiled until it evaporated, and the kettle is almost catching fire. You feel frustrated. You are...

When it comes to sacrifice, it’s always about trade-offs, something that you’re having to let go of for something else. What often breaks people is the dilemma of choice that comes with it. It’s never as easy as choosing one thing over the other. With a choice comes a whole lot of self-imposed pressure as to whether the choice was right, the trade-off worth it, and the sacrifice count? One of the most common sacrificial dilemmas comes in the form of whether to choose between a career or family. Some people might say there should be no trade-off with a career and others might say the prospect of a career, the process of polishing the resume is just ticking away the...
