FIRST RULE OF DECISION MAKING
© 2006 RogueTurtle.com

ROUGETURTLES' FIRST LAW OF DECISION MAKING: The only bad decision is one that cannot be reversed.

It's like trying to take back the bullet after it's been fired. It can't be stopped. Give yourself room to maneuver. I call it "wiggle room". Closely examine every option before you make final decisions. Try to always have a "fall-back position" if your original decision proves to be wrong, or based on bad information.

The most recent public example of this was the US decision to invade in the Mideast. This decision was based on faulty intelligence about "weapons of mass destruction". None were found. A classic example of a bad decision with no "wiggle room"...and there still is none as far as I can see. Once the invasion started, there was no turning back. Now we are stuck with bringing a third-world country back into a world they don't understand. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

I'm glad I'm not the President.
