If you’ve committed yourself to doing something, and you’ve shared the direction and vision with your fellow colleagues or subordinates, for God’s sake, STICK TO IT!
Frequent changing of direction or mind shows that you have a lack of business acumen and lack the foresight to accurately preempt events before they unfold.
It also shows that you’re a leader without a brain, or even worse.. A commander that will lead your troops into battle and get everyone wiped out in the process..
So unless you’ve got an absolutely good reason to retract your plan (like the company changing its business model), plan your action, and then for God’s sake.. STICK TO IT!
Quit flipping around like a pancake. At the end, you get burnt on both fronts, and no amount of maple syrup will save the day.
