Making Decisions Easier

“When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.”
– Roy E. Disney

Mistakes happen.  We all err in judgment or make wrong decisions at one point or another.  When you find that you’ve made a mistake; own it, be upfront and honest about it, but ultimately, you need to forget it and drive on.  You can’t question decisions made in real time.

The best we can do is to prepare for the crossroads we will inevitably find ourselves facing.  Have a clear set of values and a clear goal.  Stick to those values and the difficult decisions will be made easier.  They may not always be the right ones but standing for what you believe in (honesty, simplicity, creativity, focusing on design, producing high-quality products, offering low-cost alternatives, being user-friendly, or believing in customer-service) is more important than being right all the time.
