Making Better Decisions
Yesterday's readings from Peter Drucker:
A decision without an alternative is a desperate gambler's throw, no matter how carefully thought through it might be.
Which triggered a memory of a Frank Patrick blog in July (click here and scroll down to July 5 for the full post):
One choice is not a choice, it is a trap;
two choices is not a choice, it is a dilemma;
three choices is a choice.
Good decisions, a necessary element of good leadership, requires an understanding of choices. No choice is indeed a "gambler's throw", a "trap".
