Take a decision you don't want to, but you have to

There will be times when you have to take a hard decision you don't want to, but you have to.

We are used to delaying hard decisions until it is too late to take them. So happens with personal relations, starting going to the gym, changing jobs, or leaving a noninspiring boss. We are just too scared to face hard conversations and their consequences. So we just let everything goes by, doing nothing to see what happens next.

I recently had a conversation I don't want to have, but I must have it. Otherwise, I will be delaying a problem I knew existed for a long time. I think of myself as an optimist, and I know things will get better over time, but there are some special occasions where the more you wait, the worst it becomes. In the end, I had to have a conversation and agree on how to move on. It was hard, and it still is, but it will be better for everyone.

Conversations like this often happen when it comes to members of your team, it is hard to let someone go. As a leader, you must think about the bigger picture first. If it makes sense for the bigger picture and you are personally not comfortable about it, you have to go for it. Decide and commit. It will hurt for a few days, but it is a win-win for everybody in the long run. You have to let people go if they are not happy with you. They will be happy somewhere else. Please give them the gift of time and move on.

I wrote this to remind me that life goes on, with or without you.
