Wit & Wisdom Wednesday - Patton on Decision Making
"No good decision was ever made in a swivel chair." George S. Patton
It is Wit & Wisdom Wednesday at Elarbee Media, and we love this quote. We don't hate swivel chairs, but we do recognize that they symbolize detached decision making. Hands on experience and understanding of a situation is not only recommended, it is necessary.
Exposure to the practical application of decisions is critical to ensuring they yield the intended results. Not only does that require getting our of the "swivel chair", it requires due diligence before the decisions are made.
