Decisions Quotes A-Z by Author|
is one of the most important subjects of your entire life. Some of life's greatest
enjoyments and most of life's greatest disappointments stem from your decisions
about money. Whether you experience great peace of mind or constant anxiety will
depend on getting your finances under control.
G Allen - Money

I work with. I listen and then I decide.
That's how it works.

Beeny - Money
My position is that I am personally opposed
to abortion, but I don't think I have a
right to impose my view on the rest of society.
I've thought a lot about it, and my position
probably doesn't please anyone. I think
the government should stay out completely.
I will not vote to overturn the Court's
decision. I will not vote to curtail a woman's
right to choose abortion. But I will also
not vote to use federal funds to fund abortion.
Biden - Politics

There are only two words that will always
lead you to success. Those words are yes
and no. Undoubtedly, youve mastered
saying yes. So start practicing saying no.
Your goals depend on it!
Canfield - Goals
Success depends on getting good at saying no without feeling guilty. You
cannot get ahead with your own goals if you are always saying yes to someone elses
projects. You can only get ahead with your desired lifestyle if you are focused
on the things that will produce that lifestyle.
Canfield - Success
Whenever a warrior decides to do something,

Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter
of conscious choice, and discipline.
Collins - Great
I think the most important CEO task is defining
the course that the business will take over
the next five or so years. You have to have
the ability to see what the business environment
might be like a long way out, not just over
the coming months. You need to be able to
both set a broad direction, and also to
take particular decisions along the way
that make that broad direction unfold correctly.
Corrigan - Management
You know in politics you are dealing in
the realm of choices. You don't always have
clear-cut decision between a thoroughly
principled position and a thoroughly unprincipled
one. You're making snap decisions with paucity
of information, generally trying to do the
best that you can, but you will make errors,
and sometimes it's a decision between a
bad and a worse alternative. It has to be
done, because we need to order our society,
and of politics it can literally be said:
Bad job, but someone's got to do it.
Costello - Decisions
I'm convinced that we
can write and live our own scripts more
than most people will acknowledge. I also
know the price that must be paid. It's a
real struggle to do it. It requires visualization
and affirmation. It involves living a life
of integrity, starting with making and keeping
promises, until the whole human personality
the senses, the thinking, the feeling, and
the intuition are ultimately integrated

make decisions or that only senior executives' decisions matter. This is a dangerous

What is it that you like doing? If you dont

Phil - Decisions
Today, whether it is a student who holds a sit-in to get the army recruiters
off his campus, or the mother of a dead soldier who refuses to leave the front
gate of the president's ranch, we continue to be saved by brave people who risk
ridicule and rejection but end up turning huge tides of public opinion in the
direction of righteousness. We owe them enormous debts of gratitude. It is not
easy to stand up for what is right, especially when everyone else is afraid to
leave the comfortable path of conformity.
Moore - Influential
If you took our top fifteen decisions out,
wed have a pretty average record.

principles and when opportunities came along,
you pounced on them with vigor

our choices become limited.

Russia has made its choice in favor of democracy.
Fourteen years ago, independently, without
any pressure from outside, it made that
decision in the interests of itself and

way back. There can be no return to what
we used to have before.
Putin - Society

Redstone - Decisions
Remember, a real decision is measured by
the fact that you've taken new action. If
there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse
to change any and every part of your life in an instant.
Since I'm fortunate enough to be neither
hesitant nor indecisive, I've always made
a point of consulting my partners and associates
whenever a major decision has to be made.
This is not to say that I have always been

One of the biggest lessons I've learned recently is that when you don't
know what to do, you should do nothing until you figure out what to do because
a lot of times you feel like you are pressed against the wall, and you've got
to make a decision. You never have to do anything. Don't know what to do? Do nothing.

is interesting enough to work on, maybe
one in five of those ends up being worth
doing. That might be a function of risk.
That might be a function of price. There
are all the variables. But you have to be
constantly sorting and choosing and prioritizing.
Zell - Decisions
