Decisions are simple if we bear in mind two things: Be direct, be real.
It’s no good taking detours without need when you’re in a hurry. The problem is that we like to justify detours, without considering their costs. If we don’t arrive on time, whatever we’re doing won’t get done. Equally, it’s no good going somewhere you don’t want to go. Taking the direct rout over a cliff won’t take you to anyplace other than regret. The problem is that we like to justify being in a hurry, without considering the risk of failure.
Win. Be real. Be direct.
