Angelus' Quote: Leaders Are Biased for Actions

The regret we experience for not doing something leaves a much stronger impression on us than the regret we may have for doing something. In psychology, this is called the Zeigarnik effect, which says that people remember things that they once pursued and left incomplete more than they do the things that they had completed.

For example, I'm sure most of us regret not telling someone we loved them, and those feelings are likely to remain with us forever. Knowing that we were too scared to try leaves us with an even bigger regret than the fact that we didn't do it.

The lesson is clear, apply to LEADERSHIP too: If there's something you want to do, now's the time to do it, whether it ends in success or failure. Choose to take actions! As Dr. David J. Schwartz puts in his book, The Magic of Thinking Big (I paraphrase): The cure for fear is massive actions!
