Making Decisions is the hardest art of it all

While doing the PMA, I have realized that making decsions is in fact the hardest art of it all and yet it is everywhere. Every small or big thing, we are required to make decisions but even though we make decisions almost daily in our lives, we can never master this. Everytime you look back at a particular decision, I do feel there were components or things attached with the decsion that I forgot to consider or the thing that could have had a big bearing on the decision I took. These arethe decisions based on the gounds of the information that is available to you or the things you think you know about...heuristic decsions. However, when we move onto making rational decsions based on some tools and techniques, it becomes all the more harder, first to make a decision as to which technique to use and even harder to make decisions while working with a particular technique to apply that i the right manner. And as always with all the decisions, you certainly do feel that you could considered a certain thing here or there that could have led you to choose something else or to work with a tool in a better way. So, I wonder even though we do practice the art of decision making so very much, can we ever be satisfied or perfect when we do make our decision. I guess maybe satisfied to a certain extent but not perfect. That is why I feel decision making is the toughest art of it all.

    Of course every time that we go back to previous decisions we think of what we could have done differently and other factors that could have influenced the decisions. However, to my mind, the point is to review the situation and learn from it, so that if something similar happens again to know what to do right.
