Decision making is

  1. correctly mapping choices to future consequences
  2. prioritizing those outcomes by understanding what you want

  1. "Matahachi lay on his stomach, eyes closed, hoping against hope they would not be trampled, but Takezo stared unblinkingly upward."

  2. Better to mistakes of ambition than failures of courage.

  3. "If there is one touchstone for success, it is confidence" (Lee Kuan Yew). If there is one touchstone for confidence, it is courage.

  4. "A majority of life's errors are caused by forgetting what one is really trying to do."

  5. "People are trying to be smart — all I am trying to do is not to be idiotic, but it's harder than most people think."

    "It is remarkable how much long-term advantage people like us have gotten by trying to be consistently not stupid, instead of trying to be very intelligent."
