Make a Decision

Indecisiveness is a real killer. It’s good not to be overly headstrong and never consider your options but if you can’t make a clear decision, or if the leader of a group can’t make a choice you could end up with a bad situation on your hands.

On of the hallmarks of modern story telling in television seems to be the indecisive leader. Look at most shows from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and you’ve got strong leaders making clear decisions. Hannibal on the A-Team, Michael Knight, Captains of the Enterprise. It’s hard to imagine them hesitating in times of crisis. But modern audiences are more accepting of a more complicated dynamic and the idea of characters who hem and haw a bit before finding their way seems a bit more the norm. My classic examples, Jack from LOST and Rick from the Walking Dead. Two leaders who have hardly any consistency in their decision making.

Ah, but we love them all the same.
