Executives are not paid for doing things they like to do. They are paid for getting the right things done— most of all in their specific task, the making of effective decisions. (Peter Drucker, Management Guru)
Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide. (Napoleon Bonaparte)
‘Sir, what is the secret of your success?’ a reporter asked a bank president.
‘And, sir, what are they?’ ‘Good decisions.’
‘And how do you make good decisions?’ ‘One word.’
‘And sir, what is that?’ ‘Experience.’
‘And how do you get experience?’ ‘Two words.’
‘And, sir, what are they?’ ‘Bad decisions.’ (Anonymous)
A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion. (Chinese proverb)
There is no inherent reason why medicines should taste horrible but effective ones usually do. Similarly, there is no inherent reason why decisions should be distasteful but most effective ones are. (Peter F Drucker)
