Tattoo decisions. We don’t make many of them in life of business. But when we do make them we need to make sure that they are right. Because any reversing the changes are very painful. Here is a very funny spoof advert for Turlingtons Tattoo Removal Cream.

In business there are relatively few tattoo decisions. These involve a key decision, and then telling lots of people about it (like that Tramp Stamp tattoo):

Pretty much everything else you can reverse or change; choice of CEO, product pricing, product functionality, distribution partnerships, website design, company branding.

Interestingly in life there are even fewer tattoo decisions – except of course – actually getting a tattoo. Even getting married is probably not a tattoo decision any more. Probably the biggest tattoo decision is having children, or robbing a bank (and getting caught).  Just thought of another one – getting a turtle as a pet. They live to 60 years old. Max, my son, has 2 of them and if they survive time at college with him they will outlive me.

Every other decision (that is legal) is not a tattoo decision; where to live, which school to send your kids to, which course to take, what job to accept, what hobby to take up, what car to buy.

So why do people procrastinate about make all these decisions?  They are putting their life on hold whilst they try and decide. So, make a decision and then work to make the best of that decision.

If you were still tempted by that lower back tatto0, to finish off here is a T-mobile advert:

  1. When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment. There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service? Thank you!

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who was doing a little research on this. And he actually ordered me lunch due to the fact that I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this subject here on your internet site.
