In Others’ Words: Decisions, Decisions
“I make a decision, and if it’s wrong, I make another one.” ~ Dave Ramsey, American financial author, radio host, motivational speaker
Every time I read that quote by Dave Ramsey, I have to take a deep breath. I mentally step back and think, “Dave, you are one gutsy guy.”
The guy makes a wrong decision and just … makes another decision? He doesn’t stand there and think, “I blew it. Big time.” He doesn’t labor over his should haves and could haves.
I knew I liked Dave Ramsey. (Yes, my husband and I follow a lot of his financial advice, cash envelopes included.) If you know Dave’s story, you’ll know he’s made mistakes. This financial guru once filed for bankruptcy — but refused to let that part of his story be “The End” of his story.
He doesn’t let the wrong decision be the final decision.
In Your Words: How do you react when you make a wrong decision? Does it grind you to a halt or push you forward — on to the next decision, and the next?
