Deciding for other people.

Another bad habit with decision making, is making decisions for other people.

For example, telling someone else how to do their job when that individual is perfectly capable of making decisions about how to work. Is your way really the only way to stuff an envelope? Does your rewording of an email really make a difference? Does it matter what software other people use to write a letter?

When you make decisions for other people, you limit creativity to one person, yourself. And, you stifle the growth of decision making skills in those around you. That’s a surefire way to stagnate.
