Measured decisions usually come on the back of measured thoughts. A measured decision is a decision that’s made after considerable thought, after having weighed up all the pros and cons.
Decisions that are measured, are the best way to make decisions. Sadly, when we go on to make any decision without thinking about it, we will make hasty decisions. In some cases, because we’re acting on impulse, we could potentially get ourselves into deeper water.
Without standing back, without any form of evaluation we will get things wrong and may even go on to make some of our worst decisions. Rushing into things doesn’t work, it just means we’ll potentially go on to make more of the wrong decisions.
Of course, at the time we won’t always know if the decisions we’re making are wrong, we usually go on to find out about those later. So, the next time you have a decision to make, stand back, take time to reflect on the appropriate way forward.
Make your decision when you’ve had chance to deliberate, make it measured.
