Combat your financial worries


  • There is no such thing as a risk-free decision. Don't waste your time looking for perfection or all of the possible data before choosing. Time passing has a cost.

  • Don't agonize over minor decisions, they are minor with or without the agony. Save that energy for things that matter and more significant.

  • If the same activity or situation occurs more than three times a year, you need a procedure, not another decision.

  • Make decisions in a timely fashion. Rarely does waiting improve the quality of the decision.
