These 11 entrepreneurs, and members of The Oracles, have reached the top of their game in large part by making better decisions faster than anyone else. Their advice will help you make decisions rapidly — and stick to them.
1. Sometimes good enough is perfect
At 19 years old, my first mentor Joel Salatinsaid, “Tai, sometimes good enough is perfect.” He meant that when you only seek perfection, you miss the time element. Sometimes you just have to make a call and say, “This is good enough.”
You’re launching a new product. You’re manufacturing something. You’re thinking of writing a book or an article. You’re presenting a pitch. You’re doing some marketing.
Once you start hitting something that’s six, seven, or eight out of 10, you need to release. Remember what Mark Zuckerberg says: “If things aren’t breaking, you aren’t going fast enough.”
If that scares you, just remember: All entrepreneurs you’re competing with are facing the same time constraint. If they go too slow and you act quickly, you win.
2. Decide to escape the status quo
When we refuse to decide, that’s a decision. When I get stuck, I ask myself, Am I going to continue with the status quo, or move forward?
All decisions have a cost associated with them. Usually what holds me back is either fear or a lack of information. Get the data you need and never fear betting on yourself.

10. Evaluate the best and worst that can happen, and then don’t look back
Start by evaluating What’s the worst that can happen? and What’s my ultimate desired outcome? Then, make a decision and sink or swim with the ship. Burn the ships at sea and do what you have to do to see your decision through win or lose.
At least you made a decision. Being an entrepreneur means you’re a leader and no one wants to see the leader be wishy-washy. Speed is power!
