Decision Making quotes by H.W. Brands
#1. Gen. Scott saw more through the eyes of his staff officers than through his own. #Quote by H.W. Brands
Decision Making quotes by Peter L. Bernstein
#2. So we pour in data from the past to fuel the decision-making mechanisms created by our models, be they linear or nonlinear. But therein lies the logician's trap: past data from real life constitute a sequence of events rather than a set of independent observations, which is what the laws of probability demand.[...]It is in those outliers and imperfections that the wildness lurks. #Quote by Peter L. Bernstein
Decision Making quotes by Mario Testino
#3. I do a lot of decision making before each shoot. It's a luxury to be able to choose what you do. #Quote by Mario Testino
Decision Making quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#4. Clearly, the decision-making that we rely on in society is fallible. It's highly fallible, and we should know that. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Decision Making quotes by Sergio De La Pava
#5. What was I supposed to do then I wondered. Was there even a supposed-to for this kind of situation? A situation when when I looked at my receding past everything seemed retrospectively marked by an extreme order and predictability yet all moments since seemed to obey, and promised to continue obeying, their own set of stochastic, undisclosed, and undiscoverable laws. Where I was fully aware of the pitfalls and folly of a finely-tuned narcissism but still the known universe seemed to bend and bend inexorably inward and towards me where it awaited my next move, supremely ready to react accordingly. And how I knew that decisions I would soon make or defer would have near-Sophoclean import and yet nonetheless it all seemed oddly irrelevant. #Quote by Sergio De La Pava
Decision Making quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#6. Courage and confidence are what decision making is all about. #Quote by Mike Krzyzewski
Decision Making quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#7. Every single decision of your life is predicated on the healthy functioning of the prefrontal cortex. Even a slight malfunction in a tiny chunk of neuron anywhere in the PFC would lead to the mental deficit in your logical decision-making. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Decision Making quotes by Mike Johanns
#8. Science is the international language, so when we are able to convince countries that good decision-making for human health and animal health is based upon science, that's a real success story for us. #Quote by Mike Johanns
Decision Making quotes by Virginia Eubanks
#9. While poorhouses have been physically demolished, their legacy remains alive and well in the automated decision-making systems that encage and entrap today's poor. For all their high-tech polish, our modern systems of poverty management - automated decision-making, data mining, and predictive analysis - retain a remarkable kinship with the poorhouses of the past. Our new digital tools spring from punitive, moralistic views of poverty and create a system of high-tech containment and investigation. The digital poorhouse deters the poor from accessing public resources; polices their labor, spending, sexuality, and parenting; tries to predict their future behavior; and punishes and criminalizes those who do not comply with its dictates. In the process, it creates ever-finer moral distinctions between the 'deserving' and 'undeserving' poor, categorizations that rationalize our national failure to care for one another. #Quote by Virginia Eubanks
Decision Making quotes by Atul Gawande
#10. The philosophy is that you push the power of decision making out to the periphery and away from the center. You give people the room to adapt, based on their experience and expertise. All you ask is that they talk to one another and take responsibility. That is what works. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Decision Making quotes by Eli Pariser
#11. In a personalized world, important but complex or unpleasant issues are less likely to come to our attention at all. #Quote by Eli Pariser
Decision Making quotes by Kenneth C. Frazier
#12. The kind of evidence that was put before the jurors led to less-than-rational decision-making. I think that juries are composed of good people who can be misled. #Quote by Kenneth C. Frazier
Decision Making quotes by Eduardo Paes
#13. In Rio we built a Center of Operations, a situation room that gathers information from municipal departments and allows us to manage and help decision-making. I can check the weather, the traffic and the location of city's waste collection trucks. Each of 4,000 buses in the city has a camera connected to the situation room. #Quote by Eduardo Paes
Decision Making quotes by Cassandra Clare
#14. Magnus Bane walked some distance into the Sanctuary, shaking his head as he studied the scene before him. "I want to know what you're doing, but I must confess I'm afraid to find out," he said. "A spot of demon-summoning, I gather?"
"It's a bit complicated," said James. "Hello, Magnus. It's good to see you."
"Last time I saw you, you were facedown in the Serpentine," Magnus said cheerfully. "Now you're fiddling with a Pyxis. I see you have decided to follow in the long Herondale tradition of poor decision-making."
"So have I!" said Lucie, determined not to be left out. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Decision Making quotes by Napoleon Hill
#15. Definiteness of decision always requires courage, sometimes very great courage. The fifty-six men who signed the Declaration of Independence staked their lives on the decision to affix their signatures to that document. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Decision Making quotes by Auliq Ice
#16. Be decisive and handle objections as they come, don't relay on others much and don't look to others to determine if you're acting right or wrong. Do what feels right for you. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Decision Making quotes by Eleanor Smeal
#17. Nowhere have women been more excluded from decision-making than in the military and foreign affairs. When it comes to the military and questions of nuclear disarmament, the gender gap becomes the gender gulf. #Quote by Eleanor Smeal
Decision Making quotes by Spencer Fraseur
#18. Some choices are better than others and we, as mortal humans, cannot be expected to always choose the best ones. What we can control is how we evaluate past decisions. Our readiness to reflect and realize that we were wrong. Our ability to admit our wrongs and move forward. To say we are sorry or make amends for mistakes. To apply what we've learned from past follies and choose wiser in the present. I contend that in a random and often chaotic world of choices, that is what we can control. #Quote by Spencer Fraseur
Decision Making quotes by Carmine Savastano
#19. Believe what you wish, but prove what you can. #Quote by Carmine Savastano
Decision Making quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#20. In life, most decisions are a case of let go to get. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Decision Making quotes by Carl Sagan
#21. [Censoring] knowledge, telling people what they must think and what ideas are impermissible, which lines of evidence may not be pursued, is the aperture to thought police, foolish and incompetent decision-making, and long-term decline. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Decision Making quotes by Walter Isaacson
#22. The Kleinrock controversy is interesting because it shows that most of the Internet's creators preferred - to use the metaphor of the Internet itself - a system of fully distributed credit. They instinctively isolated and routed around any node that tried to claim more significance than the others. The Internet was born of an ethos of creative collaboration and distributed decision making, and its founders liked to protect that heritage. It became ingrained in their personalities - and in the DNA of the Internet itself. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Decision Making quotes by Cindy Gallop
#23. There was no active, conscious decision-making point, just a gradual realization over time that I'm very happy minus children and marriage. #Quote by Cindy Gallop
Decision Making quotes by Mark Miller
#24. Decision-making is a skill. Wisdom is a leadership trait. #Quote by Mark Miller
Decision Making quotes by Micah Zenko
#25. astonishing number of senior leaders are systemically incapable of identifying their organization's most glaring and dangerous shortcomings. This is not a function of stupidity, but rather stems from two routine pressures that constrain everybody's thinking and behavior. The first is comprised of cognitive biases, such as mirror imaging, anchoring, and confirmation bias. These unconscious motivations on decision-making under uncertain conditions make it inherently difficult to evaluate one's own judgments and actions. As David Dunning, a professor of psychology at Cornell University, has shown in countless environments, people who are highly incompetent in terms of their skills or knowledge are also terrible judges of their own performance. For example, people who perform the worst on pop quizzes also have the widest variance between how they thought they performed and the actual score that they earned.22 #Quote by Micah Zenko
Decision Making quotes by Naveen Jain
#26. Why is it that our young kids all across America can solve the most complex problems in a video game involving executive decision making and analytical thinking, yet we accept the fact that they can't add or read? #Quote by Naveen Jain
Decision Making quotes by Chika Unigwe
#27. Never give up if your heart and your head tell you are right. People can disappoint you, but your heart and your head will never. Make them your best friends. #Quote by Chika Unigwe
Decision Making quotes by Chris Voss
#28. people who had damage in the part of the brain where emotions are generated, he found that they all had something peculiar in common: They couldn't make decisions. They could describe what they should do in logical terms, but they found it impossible to make even the simplest choice. In other words, while we may use logic to reason ourselves toward a decision, the actual decision making is governed by emotion. #Quote by Chris Voss
Decision Making quotes by William Styron
#29. In depression this faith in deliverance, in ultimate restoration, is absent. The pain is unrelenting, and what makes the condition intolerable is the foreknowledge that no remedy will come- not in a day, an hour, a month, or a minute. If there is mild relief, one knows that it is only temporary; more pain will follow. It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul. So the decision-making of daily life involves not, as in normal affairs, shifting from one annoying situation to another less annoying- or from discomfort to relative comfort, or from boredom to activity- but moving from pain to pain. One does not abandon, even briefly, one's bed of nails, but is attached to it wherever one goes. And this results in a striking experience- one which I have called, borrowing military terminology, the situation of the walking wounded. For in virtually any other serious sickness, a patient who felt similar devistation would by lying flat in bed, possibly sedated and hooked up to the tubes and wires of life-support systems, but at the very least in a posture of repose and in an isolated setting. His invalidism would be necessary, unquestioned and honorably attained. However, the sufferer from depression has no such option and therefore finds himself, like a walking casualty of war, thrust into the most intolerable social and family situations. There he must, despite the anguish devouring his brain, present a face approximating the one that is associated with ordinary event #Quote by William Styron
Decision Making quotes by J. Courtney Sullivan
#30. Bree knew this habit of hers rankled Lara more than any other
her ability to make a decision and announce that there would be no further discussion was, in Lara's opinion, 'Cruel and selfish behavior, the type usually enacted by men with small penises. #Quote by J. Courtney Sullivan
Decision Making quotes by Marvin Bower
#31. Decisions should be based on facts, objectively considered. #Quote by Marvin Bower
Decision Making quotes by John L. Coulehan
#32. behaviors; clinical interviewing; informed decision making; listening #Quote by John L. Coulehan
Decision Making quotes by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
#33. If an agency is the ultimate judge in every case of conflict, then it is also judge in all conflicts involving itself. Consequently, instead of merely preventing and resolving conflict, a monopolist of ultimate decision making will also cause and provoke conflict in order to settle it to his own advantage. That is, if one can only appeal to the state for justice, justice will be perverted in the favor of the state, constitutions and supreme courts notwithstanding. #Quote by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
Decision Making quotes by Eugene Jarecki
#34. The Tea Party is a group that rejects deep thinking, it rejects the very complex analysis that is involved in public policy, it rejects the kind of textured decision-making that Ronald Reagan prided himself on. #Quote by Eugene Jarecki
Decision Making quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#35. Freedom of will is born from the neurons. And that freedom allows you to sometimes make even the worst decisions ever in your life. And by making the worst decision, you simply learn what would be the better decision in future. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Decision Making quotes by Ben Sasse
#36. I'm a conservative but not because I care very much about the marginal tax rates of the richest Americans, rather I'm a market-oriented localist because I believe in cultural pluralism and I believe in the First Amendment, in voluntarism over compulsion whenever possible, and in as much de-centralized decision-making as is conceivably feasible. #Quote by Ben Sasse
Decision Making quotes by Jean Francois Lyotard
#37. Liberalism does not preclude an organisation of the flow of money in which some channels are used in decision making while others are only good for the payment of debts. #Quote by Jean Francois Lyotard
Decision Making quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#38. Grameen Bank was formed as an institution owned by its borrower members, who are poor women. Through its unique decision-making process, Grameen Bank has given millions of women the means to emerge from the shadows in a male-dominated society and to make something of themselves. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Decision Making quotes by Gyan Nagpal
#39. Perfect logic applied to insufficient information in limited time almost always results in a flawed decision #Quote by Gyan Nagpal
Decision Making quotes by Amit Ahlawat
#40. There are times when relationships need to be prioritised over what is right. And there are times when the right needs to be prioritised over relationships. #Quote by Amit Ahlawat
Decision Making quotes by Steve Ballmer
#41. This is all about having great leaders who can drive agile innovation and agile decision-making. #Quote by Steve Ballmer
Decision Making quotes by Pearl Zhu
#42. Decision-making is a solid business capability to improve business responsiveness, agility, and competency. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Decision Making quotes by Tacitus
#43. The majority merely disagreed with other people's proposals, and, as so often happens in these disasters, the best course always seemed the one for which it was now too late. #Quote by Tacitus
Decision Making quotes by Marvin J. Ashton
#44. I recommend you come to know your Father in Heaven. Come to love Him. Always remember that He loves you and will give you guidance and support if you will but give Him the chance. Include Him in your decision making. Include Him in your heartaches and heartbreaks. Include Him when you take inventory of your personal worth. #Quote by Marvin J. Ashton
Decision Making quotes by Kara Swisher
#45. As anyone who has covered the company for any length of time knows, Yahoo's record on major decision-making has been akin to a hippie commune - a lot of wrangling internally in a culture where everyone seems to have a voice and a reticence to push the button to launch. #Quote by Kara Swisher
Decision Making quotes by Dina Kucera
#46. The decision-making part of the brain of an individual who has been using crystal meth is very interesting. When Carly and Andy were in their apartment, they ran out of drugs. They sold every single thing they had except two things: a couch and a blow torch. They had to make a decision because something had to be sold to buy more drugs. A normal person would automatically think, Sell the blow torch. But Andy and Carly sat on the couch, looking at the couch and looking at the blow torch, and the choice brought intense confusion. The couch? The blow torch? I mean, we may not need the blow torch today, but what about tomorrow? If we sell the couch, we can still sit wherever we want. But the blow torch? A blow torch is a very specific item. If you're doing a project and you need a blow torch, you can't substitute something else for it. You would have to have a blow torch, right? In the end, they sold the couch. #Quote by Dina Kucera
Decision Making quotes by Howard Schultz
#47. Early on I realized that I had to hire people smarter and ore qualified than I was in a number of different fields, and I had to let go of a lot of decision-making. I can't tell you how hard that is. But if you've imprinted your values on the people around you, you can dare to trust them to make the right moves. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Decision Making quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#48. It is the characteristic excellence of the strong man that he can bring momentous issues to the fore and make a decision about them. The weak are always forced to decide between alternatives they have not chosen themselves. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Decision Making quotes by Robert Gerwarth
#49. Heydrich's life therefore offers a uniquely privileged, intimate and organic perspective on some of the darkest aspects of Nazi rule, many of which are often artificially divided or treated separately in the highly specialized literature on the Third Reich: the rise of the SS and the emergence of the Nazi police state; the decision-making processes that led to the Holocaust; the interconnections between anti-Jewish and Germanization policies; and the different ways in which German occupation regimes operated across Nazi-controlled Europe. On a more personal level, it illustrates the historical circumstances under which young men from perfectly 'normal' middle-class backgrounds can become political extremists determined to use ultra-violence to implement their dystopian fantasies of radically transforming the world. #Quote by Robert Gerwarth
Decision Making quotes by J.R. Rim
#50. It's not about making the right choice.
It's about making a choice and making it right. #Quote by J.R. Rim
Decision Making quotes by Ric O'Barry
#51. You're either an activist or an inactivist. I want to stop this. #Quote by Ric O'Barry
Decision Making quotes by Tom Brady
#52. Athletes are always talking about money at a time when everyone else is struggling so badly to make it. We all make way more than our fair share. And I just think it reflects poorly on myself and my teammates. I really do just want to win, and that has and will continue to be the reason that motivates me and is the biggest factor in my decision-making process. #Quote by Tom Brady
Decision Making quotes by Leah Busque
#53. Startups need to focus on building a foundation for their company culture early, and then they need to revisit it often. Every time a hire is made, a feature is launched, a Facebook status is updated, a press interview is given, a round of financing is raised, or a meeting is held, culture should be part of the decision-making process. #Quote by Leah Busque
Decision Making quotes by Hugh Howey
#54. I wanted to leave my decision-making behind, along with my responsibility for all future ones. #Quote by Hugh Howey
Decision Making quotes by Donna Kauffman
#55. Where were you planning on heading next, then, if not Australia?" Fiona asked.
"Oh, I'll just toss a dart at the map like I usually do," Kerry said, as blithely as she could.
Fiona eyed her closely, as if checking her sincerity. "Well, whenever you do head back out--wherever and with whomever that might be--we'll make sure Gus hires someone to help him with the pub. So, you know, don't let that part affect your decision making or anything."
"'Wherever or with whomever'?" Kerry repeated with a roll of her eyes.
Fiona beamed sweetly again. "Just saying. #Quote by Donna Kauffman
Decision Making quotes by Yom Sang-seop
#56. [I]ndividual circumstances affect the choices people make. #Quote by Yom Sang-seop
Decision Making quotes by Spencer Fraseur
#57. Great leaders don't lead others with bitterness or resentfulness of past mistakes, they lead with hope and knowledge of the past to inform greater decision making in the future. #Quote by Spencer Fraseur
Decision Making quotes by Helen Grant Ross
#58. In the absence of centralized decision-making, Hebrard's town plans for Indochina had no equivalent in France itself. This is because territorial development can only be thought out and implemented when political power is strong and decisions are in few hands, as was the case during the French colonial period. #Quote by Helen Grant Ross
Decision Making quotes by Ian McEwan
#59. At moments of important decision-making, the mind could be considered as a parliament, a debating chamber. Different factions contended, short- and long-term interests were entrenched in mutual loathing. Not only were motions tabled and opposed, certain proposals were aired in order to mask others. Sessions could be devious as well as stormy. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Decision Making quotes by David Eagleman
#60. advantageous decision making. #Quote by David Eagleman
Decision Making quotes by Deborah J. Lightfoot
#61. I am heartened to find so much wit in you, that you'd give thought to consequences and choose your way with reason, not passion only. #Quote by Deborah J. Lightfoot
Decision Making quotes by Robert Donat
#62. A life that is planned is a closed life, my friend. It can be endured but it cannot be lived. #Quote by Robert Donat
Decision Making quotes by Devon Monk
#63. Apparently loved did weird things to a girl's practical decision-making skills - Matilda #Quote by Devon Monk
Decision Making quotes by Tarja Moles
#64. The Swedes have coined the term 'management by perkele' to portray the Finnish managerial approach. Instead of collectively pondering all the possible alternatives and letting every member of the staff from the cleaner to the MD voice their views, as the Swedes do, the Finns act swiftly and don't waste time on the decision-making process. If something isn't happening quickly enough, it is necessary for the top managers to slam their fists on the table and yell, 'Perkele!' Repeatedly, if necessary. #Quote by Tarja Moles
Decision Making quotes by David J. Greer
#65. Growing a business requires that we look at ourselves and change the way we make decisions. #Quote by David J. Greer
Decision Making quotes by Walter Millis
#66. The people have only a very vague direct power. They have the power of voting against the administration, again after its decisions have been taken; but they have no way of getting into the question of policy-making, decision-making, except insofar as the vague forces and pressures of public debate and public opinion have their impact on the President. The President still has to decide. He can't go to the people and ask them to decide for him; he has to make the decision. In that sense he was condemned to be a dictator. #Quote by Walter Millis
Decision Making quotes by John Hodgman
#67. The reality is that there is an enormous value to gut-check instinctive decision-making in the world that is not hampered by reams and reams of research and complexity. #Quote by John Hodgman
Decision Making quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#68. The truth is that many people set rules to keep from making decisions. #Quote by Mike Krzyzewski
Decision Making quotes by Pearl Zhu
#69. Decision maturity is to ensure the right decisions have been made by the right people at the right time to solve the right problems. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Decision Making quotes by Avishek Mondal
#70. Be the decision, not ego. #Quote by Avishek Mondal
Decision Making quotes by Israt Ali
#71. Decision Without Thinking is Like a Body Without Head... #Quote by Israt Ali
Decision Making quotes by Sebastian Coe
#72. Nobody ever becomes an expert parent. But I think good parenting is about consistency. It's about being there at big moments, but it's also just the consistency of decision making. And it's routine. #Quote by Sebastian Coe
Decision Making quotes by Sonali Sinha
#73. Conflict is not necessarily bad. If you can avoid taking conflict personally, it is actually a way to get better decisions and better results. #Quote by Sonali Sinha
Decision Making quotes by Ariel Levy
#74. But I would be happier if my daughter and her friends were crashing through the glass ceiling instead of the sexual ceiling,' Jong continued. 'Being able to have an orgasm with a man you don't love or having Sex and the City on television, that is not liberation. If you start to think about women as if we're all Carrie on Sex and the City, well, the problem is: You're not going to elect Carrie to the Senate or to run your company. Let's see the Senate fifty percent female; let's see women in decision-making positions
that's power. Sexual freedom can be a smokescreen for how far we haven't come. #Quote by Ariel Levy
Decision Making quotes by Amit Ray
#75. Effective decision-making can be seen as an optimal link between memory of the past, ground-realities of the present and insights of the future. #Quote by Amit Ray
Decision Making quotes by Zainab Salbi
#76. It appears easier to talk about protecting women than it is to fully include women at all decision-making levels in peace talks and post-conflict planning. #Quote by Zainab Salbi
Decision Making quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#77. So many people shall regret three great things tomorrow; things they did, things they did not do and things they were yet to do! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Decision Making quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#78. If we let the men talk about them and decide them, then suddenly we wake up and find out that the men have made all the decisions, and these decisions all suit men. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Decision Making quotes by Paul Jacob
#79. 'We the People' established the Constitution. Did we really do so to somehow keep ourselves out of the decision making. Are we only wise when it comes to electing people capable of governing our affairs, but wholly without the intellect to decide issues for ourselves? #Quote by Paul Jacob
Decision Making quotes by Noreena Hertz
#80. We are deluged with information. We have to process now three times as much data as we would have done 50 years ago. We're bombarded with tweets, with emails - a state of continuous disruption - and that's bad for our decision making and bad for our thinking. #Quote by Noreena Hertz
Decision Making quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#81. Eisenhower had run the Army; he knew all the ways decision making can go off the rails, and insisted on collective debate precisely to prevent senior officials from freelancing, or putting their departmental interests first. For all the formal machinery, Eisenhower was very literally the commander in chief, making the key decisions himself and monitoring closely how they were carried out. Even years after D-Day, when critics needled him for not being on the front lines with the invading forces, he retorted, I planned it and took responsibility for it. Did you want me to unload a truck? #Quote by Nancy Gibbs
Decision Making quotes by Laszlo Bock
#82. One of the applications of Big Data is giving people the facts, and getting them to understand that their own decision-making is not perfect. And that in itself causes them to change their behavior #Quote by Laszlo Bock
Decision Making quotes by Tim Ferriss
#83. For the employee, the goal is to have full access to necessary information and as much independent decision-making ability as possible. For the entrepreneur, the goal is to grant as much information and independent decision-making ability to employees or contractors as possible. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Decision Making quotes by Noam Chomsky
#84. If it is plausible that ideology will in general serve as a mask for self-interest, then it is a natural presumption that intellectuals, in interpreting history or formulating policy, will tend to adopt an elitist position, condemning popular movements and mass participation in decision making, and emphasizing rather the necessity for supervision by those who possess the knowledge and understanding that is required (so they claim) to manage society and control social change. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Decision Making quotes by Jerome Groopman
#85. False hope can lead to intemperate choices and flawed decision making. True hope takes into account the real threats that exist and seeks to navigate the best path around them. #Quote by Jerome Groopman
Decision Making quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#86. You sold out! We elected you, and you sold out! The next time we have an election, I think everyone should vote for himself. Or we might just as well vote for Charlie Brown! Yes, next year we may even say, 'You're elected, Charlie Brown! #Quote by Charles M. Schulz
Decision Making quotes by Seymour Papert
#87. Now more people are doing work that requires individual decision-making and problem-solving, and we need an educational system that will help develop those skills. #Quote by Seymour Papert
Decision Making quotes by Vishwas Chavan
#88. Small decisions made over times make big impacts. #Quote by Vishwas Chavan
Decision Making quotes by Wang Yizhou
#89. China should significantly augment the foreign aid and public goods it provides, so it can use these as a bargaining chip in its efforts to get more say in global decision-making #Quote by Wang Yizhou
Decision Making quotes by Michael Lewis
#90. Stories people told themselves were biased by the availability of the material used to construct them...what people remember about the past, [Kahneman and Tversky] suggested, is likely to warp their judgement of the future. "We often decide that an outcome is extremely unlikely or impossible, because we are unable to imagine any chain of events that could cause it to occur. The defect, often, is in our imagination. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Decision Making quotes by Paulo Freire
#91. Any situation in which some men prevent others from engaging in the process of inquiry is one of violence; ... to alienate humans from their own decision making is to change them into objects. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Decision Making quotes by Paul Gibbons
#92. Use of analytics is accelerating, and that means more data-driven
decision making and fewer hunches. Evidence-based management
complements analytics by adding validated cause-and-effect relationships
between policies and effects. #Quote by Paul Gibbons
Decision Making quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#93. In Tetlock's research, subjects are asked to solve problems and make decisions.11 For example, they're given information about a legal case and then asked to infer guilt or innocence. Some subjects are told that they'll have to explain their decisions to someone else. Other subjects know that they won't be held accountable by anyone. Tetlock found that when left to their own devices, people show the usual catalogue of errors, laziness, and reliance on gut feelings that has been documented in so much decision-making research.12 But when people know in advance that they'll have to explain themselves, they think more systematically and self-critically. They are less likely to jump to premature conclusions and more likely to revise their beliefs in response to evidence. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Decision Making quotes by Joseph Addison
#94. There is nothing more requisite in business than despatch. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Decision Making quotes by Margaret Chan
#95. We need to empower women. Give women a voice in the decision-making process. Give women a political voice where they can champion, for their own welfare. And, of course, for us. United Nations - organizations, agencies - we need to do our part. #Quote by Margaret Chan
Decision Making quotes by Michael Lewis
#96. After seeing a movie that dramatizes nuclear war, they worried more about nuclear war; indeed, they felt that it was more likely to happen. The sheer volatility of people's judgement of the odds--their sense of the odds could be changed by two hours in a movie theater--told you something about the reliability of the mechanism that judged those odds. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Decision Making quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#97. Decision making in a democracy depends above all on knowledge and not just the intel available to presidents and policymakers. #Quote by Nancy Gibbs

Decision Making quotes by Ted Cadsby
#99. We are facing greater ecological instability, deeper social complexity and a growing need for individual meaning that would be foreign to all but our most recent ancestors. We cannot reach the destinations we choose for ourselves if we do not alter our navigation systems to accommodate the greater complexity in our lives #Quote by Ted Cadsby
Decision Making quotes by Adam Johnson
#100. It's called a gui-tar. It's used to perform American rural music. It's said to be especially popular in Texas, " he told her. "It's also the instrument of choice for playing 'the blues,' which is a form of American music that chronicles the pain caused by poor decision making. #Quote by Adam Johnson
Decision Making quotes by Robert Rubin
#101. Any individual decisions can be badly thought through, and yet be successful, or exceedingly well thought through, but be unsuccessful, because the recognized possibility of failure in fact occurs. But over time, more thoughtful decision-making will lead to better overall results, and more thoughtful decision-making can be encouraged by evaluating decisions on how well they were made rather than on outcome. #Quote by Robert Rubin
Decision Making quotes by James Cromwell
#102. Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life. #Quote by James Cromwell
Decision Making quotes by Adrienne Maree Brown
#103. In a fractal conception, I am a cell-sized unit of the human organism, and I have to use my life to leverage a shift in the system by how I am, as much as with the things I do. This means actually being in my life, and it means bringing my values into my daily decision making. Each day should be lived on purpose. #Quote by Adrienne Maree Brown
Decision Making quotes by Holly Sklar
#104. Trilateralists look forward to a pseudo postnational age in which social, economic, and political values originating in the trilatleral regions are transformed into universal values. Expanding networks of like-minded governmental officials, businessmen, and technocrats - elite products of Western civilization - are to carry out national and international policy formation. Functionally specific institutions with 'more technical focus, and lesser public awareness' [italics mine] are best suited for addressing international issues in the trilateral model. Trilateralists call this decision making process 'piecemeal functionalism.' No comprehensive blueprints would be proposed and debated, but bit and bit the overall trilateral design would take shape. Its 'functional' components are to be adopted in more or less piecemeal fashion, lessening the chance people will grasp the overall scheme and organize resistance. #Quote by Holly Sklar
Decision Making quotes by Mark Batterson
#105. good decision can totally change the trajectory of our lives. And that one good decision will lead to better decisions. But it starts by making the right decision when no one is looking.

There is a past cause and future effect to every decision that goes way beyond what is discernible in the here and now. Decisions have long and often complex genealogies. And every decision is a genesis moment that has the potential to radically alter not just our destiny but the course of human history as well. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Decision Making quotes by Ursula Burns
#106. As I've progressed in my career, I've come to appreciate - and really value - the other attributes that define a company's success beyond the P&L: great leadership, long-term financial strength, ethical business practices, evolving business strategies, sound governance, powerful brands, values-based decision-making. #Quote by Ursula Burns
Decision Making quotes by Paul Bloom
#107. It might feel, at least to some of us, that our opinions about issues such as abortion and the death penalty are the products of careful deliberation and that our specific moral acts, such as deciding to give to charity or visit a friend in the hospital - or for that matter, deciding to shoplift or shout a racist insult out
of a car window - are grounded in conscious decision-making. But this is said to be mistaken. As Jonathan Haidt argues, we are not judges; we are lawyers, making up explanations after the deeds have been done. Reason is impotent. "We celebrate rationality," agrees de Waal, "but when push comes to shove we assign it little weight. #Quote by Paul Bloom
Decision Making quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#108. ...the only thing harder than knowing the right thing to to actually do the right thing. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Decision Making quotes by Simon Sinek
#109. Ironically, the woman's initial interest may have been generated based on those elements. She agreed to go on the date because her friends told her that Brad was good-looking and that he had a good job and that he knew a lot of famous people. Even though all those things may be true, WHATs don't drive decision-making, WHATs should be used as proof of WHY, and the date plainly fell flat. #Quote by Simon Sinek
Decision Making quotes by Gael Garcia Bernal
#110. Life certainly points it out to you - 'you can go this way or the other way.' You have to decide and it's a very strong decision because, would you sleep well knowing that you're living in the best place, but you're letting the place where you should live alone? #Quote by Gael Garcia Bernal
Decision Making quotes by Mark J. Solomon
#111. ...any object functioning within the physical laws of any particular universe does not have free will ... In terms of human beings, all behavior and cognition cannot appear out of thin air. Behavior and cognition must be the result of prior causes. This is because our brains obey the same laws of a cause and effect physical universe just like any other physical object. All events that occur in the universe are caused by antecedent events.

Quantum indeterminacy, which maintains that the state of a system does not determine a unique collection of values for all its measurable properties, is not a valid argument for free will and has been used incorrectly to justify beliefs of independent decision-making. Logically speaking, notions of randomness and indeterminism are actually additional arguments against free will. All events that occur at random in the universe are, by definition, not caused by antecedent events. Or to say it a different way, any random event cannot also be a willed event.

By the process of elimination, events that are "willed freely" are events that are neither determined nor random. In other words, in all likelihood events that are "willed freely" are events that simply do not exist. #Quote by Mark J. Solomon
Decision Making quotes by Michael J. Marx
#112. Good decision making is the result of years of experience making and learning from one's choices - good and bad. #Quote by Michael J. Marx

Decision Making quotes by Daniel Crosby
#116. The psychology of individuals – warts and all – must be a central consideration in the formulation of any practical investing approach. The good news here is that others' misbehavior will consistently and systematically create opportunities for you. The bad news is that you are prone to all of the same quirks and are just as likely, in the absence of strict adherence to the rules, to create the same opportunities for others. #Quote by Daniel Crosby
Decision Making quotes by Paul O'Brien

Decision Making quotes by Maria Mies
#119. All those feminists who had hoped that women's liberation could be brought about by putting pressure on the state and thus getting more social welfare for women, or by demanding equal opportunities for women in the job market, particularly in the higher ranks of this market, or by increasing women's participation in political and other decision-making bodies, find their expectations shattered. They have to realize today that the fundamental democratic rights, the claim to equality and freedom, are also fair-weather rights, as far as women are concerned, and that these rights, in spite of the rhetoric of their universality, are suspended when the accumulation needs of capital require this. #Quote by Maria Mies
Decision Making quotes by Frank Oz

Decision Making quotes by Gina McCarthy
#121. When consumers do not take full advantage of efficiency gains, it is because they are weighing other factors that influence their decision making. When the federal government arbitrarily places one of those factors over others, it makes consumers worse off. #Quote by Gina McCarthy

Decision Making quotes by Stefan Dimov
#123. I want you to judge me without thinking about it.
I want you to give me advice without considering my opinion.
I want you to expecting anything without the need to trust me.
I want you to decide for me with all the care in the world.
I want you to help me without smothering me.
I want you to decide without seeing my point of view.
I want you to hug me without holding me...
I want you to feel protected in my presence without me having to lie.
I want you to be close without suffocating me.
I want you to know everything without knowing anything...
I want you to know that both love and friendship should always be Unconditional. #Quote by Stefan Dimov
Decision Making quotes by Catherine Stonehouse
#124. Older children need a community of peers and adults with whom to begin forming a synthetic-conventional faith and to begin establishing for themselves a set of values, beliefs, and commitments that will guide their decision making and energize their wills to live out those commitments - a community that knows and lives its faith. #Quote by Catherine Stonehouse
Decision Making quotes by Mark Batterson

Once you decide to detach from attachment, you learn the art of decision making. #Quote by Sirshree
Decision Making quotes by Colette Dowling
#128. Given our socialization into dependency, women are also poor risk takers. (...) We avoid new situations, job changes, moves to different parts of the country. Women are afraid that if they should make a mistake, or do "the wrong thing", they'll be punished.
Women are less confident than men in their ability to make judgments, and in relationships will often hand over the decision-making duties to their mates, a situation which only ensures that they will become less confident in their powers of judgment as time goes by.
Most shockingly of all, women are less likely than men to fulfill their intellectual potential. (...) In fact, as women proceed into adulthood, they get lower and lower scores on "total intelligence", owing to the fact that they tend to use their intelligence less and less the longer they're away from school.
Other studies show that the intellect's ability to function may actually be impaired by dependent personality traits. (...)
Confidence and self-esteem are primary issues in women's difficulties with achievement. Lack of confidence leads us into the dark waters of envy. (...) envy must be recognized, seen, and fully comprehended; it can too easily be used as a cover-up for something that is far mroe crucial to women's independence - our own inner feelings of incompetence. These must be dealt with - directly - if we are ever to achieve confidence and strength. #Quote by Colette Dowling

Decision Making quotes by Sri Mulyani Indrawati

#136. Framing the right problem is equally or even more important than solving it. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Decision Making quotes by Dan Ariely
#137. Following imprinting, valuations become locally coherent, as the consumer attempts to reconcile future decisions of a "similar kind" with the initial one. This creates an illusion of order, because consumers' coherent responses to subsequent changes in conditions disguise the arbitrary nature of the initial, foundation choice. #Quote by Dan Ariely

Decision Making quotes by Joseph E. Ledoux
#139. Decision-making compresses trial-and-error learning experiences into an instantaneous mental evaluation about what the consequence of a particular action will be for a given situation. It requires the on-line integration of information from diverse sources: perceptual information about the stimulus and situation, relevant facts and experiences stored in memory, feedback from emotional systems and the physiological consequences of emotional arousal, expectations about the consequences of different courses of action, and the like. This sort of integrative processing, as we've seen is the business of working memory circuits in the prefrontal cortex. In chapters 7 and 8 , we discussed the role of the prefrontal cortex in working memory and considered the contribution of the lateral and medial prefrontal cortex. Here, we will focus on two of the subareas of the medial prefrontal cortex in light of their relation to the motive circuits outlined above. #Quote by Joseph E. Ledoux

Decision Making quotes by Rachana Shakyawar
#142. What I have learnt in life is that,
What we are today, are not the compromises or sacrifices we made in life.
We are the product of passion in priorities we make to enrich our as well as other's life. Indeed, you are only growing and evolving in your life with your tough decisions. #Quote by Rachana Shakyawar
Decision Making quotes by Nathan Shedroff

Decision Making quotes by Josephine Angelini
#144. So, what can't you take? Decide which of the two options is harder, and do the other. That way, no matter how hard your choice turns out to be, at least you can find comfort in knowing you're avoiding something even worse. #Quote by Josephine Angelini
Decision Making quotes by Gary L. Thomas
#145. In this generation, we parents have gone out of our way to protect our children from pain and to see that they succeed. The problem with this approach is that the kids don't learn wisdom, and they don't learn decision-making skills. I believe we learn more from failure than success, but when parents keep kids from failure, our children inevitably end up lacking wisdom. #Quote by Gary L. Thomas
Decision Making quotes by Judd Nelson

Decision Making quotes by Robert K. Greenleaf
#147. On an important decision one rarely has 100% of the information needed for a good decision no matter how much one spends or how long one waits. And, if one waits too long, he has a different problem and has to start all over. This is the terrible dilemma of the hesitant decision maker. #Quote by Robert K. Greenleaf

Decision Making quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#150. Who today is mad enough to challenge the virtues of eliminating hypocrisy from politics? Or of providing more information - the direct result of self-tracking - to facilitate decision making? Or of finding new incentives to get people interested in saving humanity, fighting climate change, or participating in politics? Or of decreasing crime? To question the appropriateness of such interventions, it seems, is to question the Enlightenment itself.

And yet I feel that such questioning is necessary. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Decision Making quotes by Kevin Spacey
#151. Whatever mistakes you make this time around, you will live through on your next pass. Every mistake you make, you will live through again and again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have. #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Decision Making quotes by Roland Allen
#152. In arriving at a decision in a question of doubt, the apostles in the Acts were guided solely by their sense of the Spirit behind the action, not by any speculations as to consequences which might ensue. And so they found the truth. #Quote by Roland Allen

Decision Making quotes by Ophelia London
#155. I leaned forward, but Todd lifted a hand to stop me. "There's one more thing I've been meaning to tell you all day."
"What is it?" I asked impatiently, not able to keep from staring at his mouth.
He took his time, drawing in a slow inhale and then letting it out just as slowly. "You," he finally whispered, running a finger across my chin, "absolutely take my breath away."
It was right then that I knew, down to my curling toes and thumping heart, that I had made the correct decision, maybe the most correct decision ever to be made in the history of decision-making. I reached for him, torn between wanting to stare into his incredible green eyes and an almost painful desire to kiss him.
Naturally, we kissed. And kissed. #Quote by Ophelia London
Decision Making quotes by Kate McGahan
#156. There is a period of one to two earth years that humans are to refrain from making big decisions. It's because you don't always make the best decisions when you are grieving. Those who make decisions in haste often live to regret them. You must move through the time of suffering, strengthening your faith and being willing to grow through the grief in order to be able to see things differently. As you grow, your blind faith will continue to open your eyes. You will see everything in a whole new light when you come out the other side of grief. Then you will be able to make very good decisions for yourself, better than ever, because of what you learned. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Decision Making quotes by Safiya Umoja Noble
#157. I do not think it a coincidence that when women and people of color are finally given opportunity to participate in limited spheres of decision making in society, computers are simultaneously celebrated as a more optimal choice for making social decisions. #Quote by Safiya Umoja Noble
Decision Making quotes by Shahenshah Hafeez Khan
#158. To change the decision of the decision maker in our favor, create a doubt in the messenger's mind, a small doubt raised by own people is bigger than real facts presented by outsiders. #Quote by Shahenshah Hafeez Khan
Decision Making quotes by Barack Obama
#159. My life story is something obviously that belongs to me very personally. And the fact of the matter is that I had choices and chances and opportunities that were provided to me, based on the way I was able to direct my own decision-making. And what I'm working to fight for is to make sure that all women have the ability to do that. #Quote by Barack Obama
Decision Making quotes by Michael Lewis
#160. They would learn to evaluate a decision not by its outcomes--whether it turned out to be right or wrong--but by the process that led to it. The job of the decision maker wasn't to be right but to figure out the odds in any decision and play them well. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Decision Making quotes by Laurie Anderson

Decision Making quotes by Steven Pinker
#163. If [t]he mind is a system with many parts, then an innate desire is just one component among others. Some faculties may endow us with greed or lust or malice, but others may endow us with sympathy, foresight, selfrespect, a desire for respect from others, and an ability to learn from our own experiences and those of our neighbors. These are physical circuits residing in the prefrontal cortex and other parts of the brain, not occult powers of a poltergeist, and they have a genetic basis and an evolutionary history no less than the primal urges. It is only the Blank Slate and the Ghost in the Machine that make people think that drives are "biological" but that thinking and decision making are something else. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Decision Making quotes by David Brooks
#164. The great works of art and literature have a lot to say on how to tackle the concrete challenges of living, like how to escape the chains of public opinion, how to cope with grief or how to build loving friendships. Instead of organizing classes around academic concepts - 19th-century French literature - more could be organized around the concrete challenges students will face in the first decade after graduation. #Quote by David Brooks
Decision Making quotes by Jason Wiles
#165. I had played sports all my life, and I thought that was going to be the way. But I saw where the potential in football was going to end. When it comes to decision-making, I just follow my gut at the end of the day. And if I don't, I get in trouble. I wanted to become a filmmaker. #Quote by Jason Wiles
Decision Making quotes by Diane F. Halpern
#166. Hindsight is of little value in the decision-making process. It distorts our memory for events that occurred at the time of the decision so that the actual consequence seems to have been a "foregone conclusion." Thus, it may be difficult to learn from our mistakes. #Quote by Diane F. Halpern
Decision Making quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#167. This freedom from decision making is crucial, because when I have to decide - which often involves resisting temptation or postponing gratification - I tax my self-control. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin

#170. If we are going to out-innovate, out-compete, out-educate other countries, it's going to be women who make a difference, it's women who are going to lead the way and you know, until women get that rightful place and decision making and leadership and growth, America won't realize all her potential. #Quote by Kirsten Gillibrand

Decision Making quotes by Thomas Sowell
#176. Freedom ... refer[s] to a social relationship among people-namely, the absence of force as a prospective instrument of decision making.

Decision Making quotes by Cokie Roberts
#178. When kids made a decision for themselves they have a vested interest in showing they were right. Lee wanted to prove to me that he had made the right choice so he worked hard and did well. If we'd forced him to go to college somewhere else all the incentives would've been different. Then he would have had a motive to prove that we were wrong. #Quote by Cokie Roberts

#179. Free and open expression coupled with visionary leadership generally encourages good decision-making. #Quote by M. Russell Ballard
Decision Making quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#180. Choosing any particular lifestyle is disquieting. Decision-making requires giving up something and believing in something. I abhor making choices because I am greedy and insincere. I might create a stronger sense of self if I made conscious choices, by selecting what truly matters in my life, by dedicating my very being to a central precept. I remain unengaged with any stabilizing concepts and my self is in a constant state of changing. I spend time composing a self, only to turn about and destroy my unsatisfactory self, resulting in a continual state of making and revamping my sense of self. Just when family members and friends think they know who I am, I drastically change. People cannot love or even profess affection for a flaky person such as me, a Proteus-like elusive sea creature that is in a constant state of metamorphosis, a person they cannot pin down or pigeonhole as a specific type of person. My staunch refusal to commit to any permanent membrane ensures that I will always remain unknown and therefore unloved and unlovable. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Decision Making quotes by Harold R. Kerzner
#181. The alternative to systematic planning is decision-making based on history. This generally results in reactive management leading to crisis management, conflict management, and fire fighting. #Quote by Harold R. Kerzner

Decision Making quotes by Michael B. Oren
#185. That combination, perhaps, deterred me from telling Netanyahu the most difficult truth of all. Simply: that he had much in common with Obama. Both men were left-handed, both believed in the power of oratory and that they were the smartest men in the room. Both were loners, adverse to hasty decision making and susceptible to a strong woman's advice. And both saw themselves in transformative historical roles. Their similarities, perhaps as much as their differences, heightened the chances for friction between the president and Netanyahu, I could have told him. But I did not. Rather, as the prime minister descended the stairs to the tarmac that early May 20 morning, I merely said, "Welcome to Washington, sir," and extended my hand. This he gripped and pulled me toward him. With his eyes still flaring, he recalled the cable I sent him months back predicting the president's speech. "You called it right," he whispered. #Quote by Michael B. Oren
Decision Making quotes by James Spader
#186. Fear plays an interesting role in our lives. How dare we let it motivate us. How dare we let it into our decision-making, into our livelihoods, into our relationships. It's funny, isn't it? We take a day a year to dress up in costumes and celebrate fear. #Quote by James Spader

#188. In the 1960 campaign, Arthur Schlesinger wrote of Adlai Stevenson, who already lost twice as the party's presidential nominee, He has been away from power too long; he gives me an odd sense of unreality, a certain frivolity, distractedness, over-interest in words and phrases. #Quote by David Pietrusza
Decision Making quotes by David Blunkett
#189. Changes to parliamentary procedure won't transform the lives of the people whom I represent. Decentralising, devolving decision-making and renewing civil society will. #Quote by David Blunkett
Decision Making quotes by Larken Rose
#190. To be blunt, the belief in "authority" serves as a mental crutch for people seeking to escape the responsibility involved with being a thinking human being. It is an attempt to pass off the responsibility for decision-making to someone else: those claiming to have "authority. #Quote by Larken Rose
Decision Making quotes by Tom DeMarco
#191. Slackless organizations tend to be authoritarian. When efficiency is the principal goal, decision making can't be distributed. It has to be in the hands of one person (or a few), with everyone else taking direction without question and acting quickly to carry out orders. This is a fine formula for getting a lot done, but a dismal way to encourage reinvention and learning. #Quote by Tom DeMarco
Decision Making quotes by Algis Valiunas
#192. He felt everything - pride in his competence and leadership during the Second World War, pride in his noble intransigence during the Cold War, intellectual pleasure in what he called the "technically sweet" conception of the H-bomb, self-disgust that he could feel such pleasure in so monstrous a creation - but could decide on nothing. Brilliance of this scattershot type effectively disqualifies a man from political decision-making. Oppenheimer was simply not the sort of man a nation can entrust with its fate. #Quote by Algis Valiunas
Decision Making quotes by Steve Maraboli
#193. Don't confuse poor decision-making with destiny. Own your mistakes. It's ok; we all make them. Learn from them so they can empower you! #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Decision Making quotes by Paul Hawken
#194. There are insistent calls for autonomy, appeals for a new resource ethic based on the tradition of the commons, demands for the reinstatement of cultural primacy over corporate hegemony, and a rising demand for radical transparency in politics and corporate decision making. It has been said that environmentalism failed as a movement, or worse yet, died. It is the other way around. Everyone on earth will be an environmentalist in the not too distant future, driven there by necessity and experience. #Quote by Paul Hawken

#204. Just a minute, Esther. Slow down and listen to me. How can Hashem answer such a prayer in the middle of a war? We are the ones who started this war, not Him. People are not puppets that Hashem controls, making us do whatever He wants. Nor can He be manipulated to do whatever we ask of Him. Human beings chose to start this war, and that means we are responsible for putting the people we love in danger, not Him. But Hashem can bring good from this, even if we cannot see it. #Quote by Lynn Austin
Decision Making quotes by Janelle Stalder
#205. I grinned into the phone. "You like to think about a man making sweet love to my mouth? I think you have a problem, Ella bella." "If you don't know by now that I love you long time, Ollie, you are not very observant. #Quote by Janelle Stalder
Decision Making quotes by James Hillman
#206. Each life is formed by its unique image, an image that is the essence of that life and calls it to a destiny. As the force of fate, this image acts as a personal daimon, an accompanying guide who remembers your calling.

The daimon motivates. It protects. It invents and persists with stubborn fidelity. It resists compromising reasonableness and often forces deviance and oddity upon its keeper, especially when neglected or opposed. It offers comfort and can pull you into its shell, but it cannot abide innocence. It can make the body ill. It is out of step with time, finding all sorts of faults, gaps, and knots in the flow of life - and it prefers them. It has affinities with myth, since it is itself a mythical being and thinks in mythical patterns.

It has much to do with feelings of uniqueness, of grandeur and with the restlessness of the heart, its impatience, its dissatisfaction, its yearning. It needs its share of beauty. It wants to be seen, witnessed, accorded recognition, particularly by the person who is its caretaker. Metaphoric images are its first unlearned language, which provides the poetic basis of mind, making possible communication between all people and all things by means of metaphors #Quote by James Hillman
Decision Making quotes by Napoleon Hill
#207. The major weakness of all educational systems is that they neither teach nor encourage the habit of definite decision. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Decision Making quotes by Charles Manson
#208. How the hell did I brainwash 35 girls in less than a year? That's impossible. You're making me out to do the impossible. You don't understand you are making me a legend. #Quote by Charles Manson
Decision Making quotes by Elon Musk
#209. To make an embarrassing admission, I like video games. That's what got me into software engineering when I was a kid. I wanted to make money so I could buy a better computer to play better video games - nothing like saving the world. #Quote by Elon Musk
Decision Making quotes by Peter Drucker
#210. Knowledge is information that changes something
or somebody - either by becoming grounds for actions, or by making an
individual (or an institution) capable of different or more effective action. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Decision Making quotes by John Holdren
#211. Humanity cannot afford to muddle through the rest of the twentieth century; the risks are too great, and the stakes are too high. This may be the last opportunity to choose our own and our descendants' destiny. Failing to choose or making the wrong choices may lead to catastrophe. But it must never be forgotten that the right choices could lead to a much better world. #Quote by John Holdren
Decision Making quotes by Paul W.S. Bowler
#212. Fuck your honour, Kaisheen. You are the smartest man I know, yet you had me travel three days during winter to have my counsel. Are you making a move on the Emperor? If you are, you'll have my full support and the backing of the Monasteries. #Quote by Paul W.S. Bowler
Decision Making quotes by A.G. Howard
#213. I step closer, sand sifting under my feet, as I realize another truth. "Wait ... if you've known all along about Red's magic, you've been playing Morpheus, letting him think he was playing you."
"Yeah." He smirks. "I tricked the trickster. Ironic, right?" A hint of pride shines through, making his eyes glimmer the color of spring leaves. #Quote by A.G. Howard
Decision Making quotes by Charlotte Stein
#214. His voice sounded like molten metal. As if he had something thick at the back of his throat and it was making him sound deeper and richer than he actually was. #Quote by Charlotte Stein
Decision Making quotes by Joyce Meyer
#215. Enjoyment of life is not based on enjoyable circumstances. It is an attitude of the heart, a decision to enjoy everything because everything - even little, seemingly insignificant things - have a part in the overall "big picture" of life. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Decision Making quotes by Nathan Sawaya
#216. Art makes better humans, art is necessary in understanding the world and art makes people happy. Undeniably, art is not optional. #Quote by Nathan Sawaya
Decision Making quotes by Alec Guinness
#217. Much of the day I have busied myself making notes on the small parts in Shakespeare, often nameless, which are rewarding to the actor if only he'll not dismiss them as beneath his dignity. If I can work it up into a talk I might call it, 'Only a cough and a spit ' -the phrase so often used by actors to explain away a lack of opportunity. #Quote by Alec Guinness

Decision Making quotes by R. Scott Bakker
#220. All Kellhus could see of his father were two fingers and a thumb lying slack upon a bare thigh. The thumbnail gleamed.
"As Dûnyain," the disembodied voice continued, "you had no choice. To command yourself, you had to master circumstance. And to master circumstance, you had to bind the actions of the worldborn to your will. You had to make limbs of nations. So you made their beliefs the object of your relentless scrutiny. It was axiomatic.
"You realized those truths that cut against the interests of the powerful were called lies, and that those lies that served those interests were called truths. And you understood that it had to be this way, since it is the function of belief, not the veracity, that preserved nations. Why call an emperor's blood divine? Why tell slaves that suffering is grace? It is what beliefs do, the actions they license and prohibit, that is important. If men believed all blood was equal, the caste-nobility would be overthrown. If men believed all coin was oppression, the caste-merchants would be turned out.
"Nations tolerate only those beliefs that conserve the great system of interlocking actions that makes them possible. For the worldborn, you realized, truth is largely irrelevant. Why else would they all dwell in delusion?
"Your first decision was elementary. You claimed to be a member of the caste-nobility, a prince, knowing that, once you convinced some, you could demand that all act accordingly. And through this simple deceptio #Quote by R. Scott Bakker

#221. Notice that, in making ourselves available, we are not doing God any favors. We give ourselves for God's use to benefit creation, not to benefit God. #Quote by Miroslav Volf
Decision Making quotes by Nick Hornby
#222. His way of coping with the days was to think of activities as units of time, each unit consisting of about thirty minutes. Whole hours, he found, were more intimidating, and most things one could do in a day took half an hour. Reading the paper, having a bath, tidying the flat, watching Home and Away and Countdown, doing a quick crossword on the toilet, eating breakfast and lunch, going to the local shops ... That was nine units of a twenty-unit day (the evenings didn't count) filled by just the basic necessities. In fact, he had reached a stage where he wondered how his friends could juggle life and a job. Life took up so much time, so how could one work and, say, take a bath on the same day? He suspected that one or two people he knew were making some pretty unsavoury short cuts. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Decision Making quotes by Mariah Nelson
#223. Bodybuilding is about making oneself seem larger than life. It's about creating the illusion of perfection. #Quote by Mariah Nelson
Decision Making quotes by Pat Barker
#224. And as soon as you accepted that the man's breakdown was a consequence of his war experience rather than his own innate weakness, then inevitably the war became the issue. And the therapy was a test, not only of the genuineness of the individual's symptoms, but also of the validity of the demands the war was making on him. Rivers had survived partly by suppressing his awareness of this. But then along came Sassoon and made the justifiability of the war a matter for constant, open debate, and that suppression was no longer possible. At times it seemed to Rivers that all his other patients were the anvil and that Sassoon was the hammer. Inevitably there were times when he resented this. As a civilian, Rivers's life had consisted of asking questions, and devising methods by which truthful answers could be obtained, but there are limits to how many fundamental questions you want to ask in a working day that starts before eight am and doesn't end till midnight. #Quote by Pat Barker

Decision Making quotes by Brian Jordan
#226. Last year, the surgery was a tough decision, but I had to make a decision based on my career. It was a decision to get healthy, and start over with a new team at 100 percent. #Quote by Brian Jordan
Decision Making quotes by George Orwell
#227. Close friendships, Gandhi says, are dangerous, because "friends react on one another" and through loyalty to a friend one can be led into wrong-doing. This is unquestionably true. Moreover, if one is to love God, or to love humanity as a whole, one cannot give one's preference to any individual person. This again is true, and it marks the point at which the humanistic and the religious attitude cease to be reconcilable. To an ordinary human being, love means nothing if it does not mean loving some people more than others. The autobiography leaves it uncertain whether Gandhi behaved in an inconsiderate way to his wife and children, but at any rate it makes clear that on three occasions he was willing to let his wife or a child die rather than administer the animal food prescribed by the doctor. It is true that the threatened death never actually occurred, and also that Gandhi - with, one gathers, a good deal of moral pressure in the opposite direction - always gave the patient the choice of staying alive at the price of committing a sin: still, if the decision had been solely his own, he would have forbidden the animal food, whatever the risks might be. There must, he says, be some limit to what we will do in order to remain alive, and the limit is well on this side of chicken broth. This attitude is perhaps a noble one, but, in the sense which - I think - most people would give to the word, it is inhuman. The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection #Quote by George Orwell
Decision Making quotes by Taylor Swift
#228. I base a lot of decisions on my gut, and going with an independent label was a good one. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Decision Making quotes by Burt Rutan
#229. Since Yuri Gagarin and Al Shepard's epoch flights in 1961, all space missions have been flown only under large, expensive government efforts. By contrast, our program involves a few, dedicated individuals who are focused entirely on making spaceflight affordable. #Quote by Burt Rutan

Decision Making quotes by Rory Feek
#231. Time has a way of making me realize that we can either lay the blamer our problems on someone else, letting that be an excuse for why our life isn't turning out the way we want it, or we can take the blame upon ourselves and let the responsibility for any change that should happen be on us. #Quote by Rory Feek
Decision Making quotes by Tim Scott

Decision Making quotes by Jarod Kintz

Decision Making quotes by Grimes

Decision Making quotes by Oscar Wilde
#235. And it was inevitable. In every relation of life with others one has to find some moyen de vivre. In your case, one had either to give up to you or to give you up. There was no alternative. Through deep if misplaced affection for you: through great pity for your defects of temper and temperament: through my own proverbial good-nature and Celtic laziness: through an artistic aversion to coarse scenes and ugly words: through that incapacity to bear resentment of any kind which at that time characterised me: through my dislike of seeing life made bitter and uncomely by what to me, with my eyes really fixed on other things, seemed to be mere trifles too petty for more than a moment's thought or interest – through these reasons, simple as they may sound, I gave up to you always. As a natural result, your claims, your efforts at domination, your exactions grew more and more unreasonable. Your meanest motive, your lowest appetite, your most common passion, became to you laws by which the lives of others were to be guided always, and to which, if necessary, they were to be without scruple sacrificed. Knowing that by making a scene you could always have your way, it was but natural that you should proceed, almost unconsciously I have no doubt, to every excess of vulgar violence. At the end you did not know to what goal you were hurrying, or with what aim in view. Having made your own of my genius, my will-power, and my fortune, you required, in the blindness of an inexhaustible greed, #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Decision Making quotes by David Bayles
#236. ART IS MADE BY ORDINARY PEOPLE. Creatures having only virtues can hardly be imagined making art. It's difficult to picture the Virgin Mary painting landscapes. Or Batman throwing pots. The flawless creature wouldn't need to make art. #Quote by David Bayles
