Personal Decision-Making: Perfect Timing Doesn't Exist
by Dee McCrorey - Dec, 2009
Our decisions put us in the driver's seat and over time define who we become. So, why do people so often allow others to make decisions for them by choosing to do nothing? Of course, it is easier to blame someone else for not doing right by us, instead of accepting the consequences of an imperfect decision.
