Search, Research and then Perch
Quote of the day: ‘To lessen the side effects of bad decisions I suggest following three basic principles: Search, then research and finally perch. It is as simple as that.
Tomorrow holds an incredible amount of surprises, some small and some quite colossal and some rather damaging. Life is about learning, as we learn we become educated. Education makes us cultured in our mannerism, in our persona and in our role as unselfish human beings. Education is not about glorification but rather edification. Glorification is about self-adoration and self-praise and about receiving money and lots of it for your achievements. This is not the principle priority of education. Edification on the other hand is about self-improvement, it is also about enlightenment. It is about gaining explanation and insight into the concept of life and how to exercise your given role. It is about learning and also about teaching onto others what you have learned. It is about following instructions correctly and adhering to fundamental principles, principles that govern planetary movements, principles that make certain atoms combine with each other and with different other atoms. Education is certainly not about obfuscation. It is not meant to keep you in the dark. It is not meant to mystify you. Education is about clarification, it is about knowing right from wrong. Most of us do not realise this and consequently make drastic mistakes, in other words we make all the wrong decisions. Making wrong decisions ultimately makes a wrong turn in your life and subsequently yielding the wrong outcome. You know what I mean and to exemplify this I list some wrong decisions below as an example:
- You feel disappointed at the quality and quantity of the food you receive at a popular restaurant.
- You are equally disappointed when you visit your Bed and Breakfast to find out that the rooms are unclean and full of cobwebs.
- You bought the wrong vehicle, only to find out that if you waited a few more days you could have got a better deal.
The above lists some of the many consequences of bad decision making. Regretfully we are making it all the time and in some instances we are making bad decisions on a daily basis. To lessen the effect of bad decision making I suggest the following three steps:
- You need to make a thorough search of what you really need.
- From this find do a further research to establish whether you are making the right decision or not.
- Finally you then need to perch, in other words you have to make the final decision by settling on your researched data.
