Observation: leaving things to the last minute

COP_webHave you noticed that people seemed to leave more and more things to the last minute? There are some good reasons for a decision-delaying strategy. If the situation you are facing is uncertain, changing, and their are plenty of options and competing possibilities then one strategy is to just wait and see what happens. The problem of today might very well be a distant memory tomorrow. Technologies like mobile phones support this strategy. Who needs to precisely plan a get together when you can text some friends on the spur of the moment, find out where they are and nominate a rendezvous point there and then. Does this sound uncomfortable? Get used to it because this is the way the world is moving.

A decision you shouldn’t delay, however, is signing up for our communities of practice workshops. The early bird discount is available up until the 31 March. You can download the brochure here.
