Making decisions right

I don’t know where I heard this, but you should not be as concerned with making the right decision all the time. You should be conscious of making decisions right.

No one is right all the time, but trying to make the right decision, is like guessing. Instead you should try and make the decision right. You do this by being logical and keeping emotions out of the equation.

Definitely do not get caught up in righting a wrong decision. This is a recipe for disaster. You have to sink it and move on.

How do you make decisions right? First, you can’t worry about making the wrong decision. All you can do is make the best decision with the information you have, at that moment in time.

The worst thing you can do? Be a sitting duck and don’t make a decision at all. Not doing anything can be a decision, but it has to be calculated.

This post is inspired by Seth Godin’s post titled, “Ignore sunk costs”. He gives few good examples of making the right decision. We make decisions everyday. It seems that the more important a decision becomes, the less inclined we want to make it.
