What Is A 'Decision'?

A Decision is the act of committing to a specific plan of action.

If you're not cutting off viable options, you are not making a decision.

No Decision is ever made with complete information. Lack of information shouldn't prevent your from deciding, the world is too complex to make accurate predictions.

Failure to make a Decision is itself a Decision. Life doesn't stop if you refuse to choose.

For best results, be clear and conscious when making a decision.

Questions About 'Decisions'

José Ortega y Gasset, philosopher and essayist
