Everything Counts

Success lies in the details. Everything you say; every thought you entertain; and everything you do has a direction, which serves as an advance or a retreat in respect to your pursuit of excellence. Everything, regardless of size or intent, has bottom-line consequences; therefore, everything counts — this is the golden rule of excellence.

Excellent. I'm as guilty as anyone. Information gathering has a way of becoming the end in itself, perhaps in the hope that if we can just collect ENOUGH info, the decision will make itself and be risk-free. Truth is, it often does -- by allowing someone else to beat us to it, and we've no decision left to make. Every decision can't be a "gut" decision, but making a timely one often requires guts.
