Decisions are made via a decision-chain. The first link is information. The second link is paradigm, or how you process information. The third link is strategy, or what you decide to do with the information.

Like any other chain, the decision-chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Poor information leads to poor decisions. And if the decision-maker is laboring under a false paradigm, good information will still result in poor decisions.

A defective decision-chain makes you feel like you are rowing against the tide. But with good strategy, life should be as pleasurable as rowing downstream on a Sunday afternoon.
