Many choices we have to make, both in our lives and in our careers, don’t necessarily have a right and wrong choice. When both routes are appealing, don’t fall into the trap of trying to pursue both.
Psychology Today points out that the ability to choose between two good options is a key factor in business success.
…the inability to make what Harvard ethics professor, Joseph Badaracco calls “right vs. right” decisions can be a fatal strategic flaw. An otherwise talented manager who can’t bring himself to focus on one customer segment at the expense of others (but what if they want to buy, too!?!) winds up taking his team in circles, and his career into a rut.
Consciously abandoning some potential choices or pursuits, even good ones, can allow us to focus and become great at one thing, rather than merely adequate at several.
