Decisions aren’t always easy for me–perhaps I spend too much time thinking what might follow a bad decision, or even a less than great decision. I’m tempted to second-guess myself about my choices.
Here’s what Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States, has to say on the subject:
“The best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing.”
He seems to be telling me that I’ve got to get over my hesitancy. I don’t think what he says can always be true–sometimes not doing anything has got to be better than doing the wrong thing, but it’s a valuable prod. Inaction is bound to be more costly more often than I take into account.
What do you think?
