Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
An expert is someone who has succeeded in making decisions and judgements simpler through knowing what to pay attention to and what to ignore.
-Edward De Bono
To swear off making mistakes is very easy. All you have to do is swear off having ideas.
When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.
I hate to see things done by halves. If it be right, do it boldly,–if it be wrong leave it undone.
