Making Decisions

Every day we make many decisions - sometimes on our own and sometimes together with others.

Some decisions are simple and other decisions are complex.

  • There is no formula for making the best decision, and often we may not know the outcome of that decision for some time in the future.
  • The more important a decision, the more time and care you should take in making it. Consider:
    • Advice of people close to you or who are knowledgeable in the area
    • Other options available
    • Likely outcomes of the decision
  • Don’t expect to get every decision right. We can learn valuable lessons from all the wrong decisions that we make.

It’s good to keep in mind this quote:

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work". - Thomas Edison
