What did we learn from the mistake of a previous decision?
It is all too easy to make a great decision, and the outcome is exactly what was wanted; however, it only sometimes works out in the way we intended, and sometimes the business decision is disastrous. If you have made many terrible decisions in business, let me tell you, you are definitely not alone. One way we learn from our mistakes is by deciding after the event what worked, because more times than not, a poor decision was not all bad; there would be some of the events that were all right, but the end result was not the intended success.
How do we learn for next time?
One of the best ways to learn from a previous poor decision is to make notes and decide what didn’t work before, so you can do less and, on the other, what did work and do more. We are often away in the moment of triumph or defeat and forget the good and the bad when a similar event comes our way next time.
It’s essential to take the time to reflect and think about your overall outcome. It’s vital to be conscious and analyse yourself at the moment. Sitting on your hands and taking the time to consider the consequences of your decisions is invaluable. Taking this time to evaluate yourself and your choices is an essential step in ensuring you reach your desired outcome.
Seek wise Council and ask for help along the way
Who do you have in your network of people that you value their opinion and trust? It must be part of your process to go and seek advice and guidance from someone who is not financially or personally associated with the circumstances of the decision,
