Dealing with uncertainty

We always come to the point that we have to make a choice. Hercules at the cross roads avoided the choice between just turning right or left. He expanded the set of choices and widened them. He reflected and checked his assumptions while analyzing his options. When making a choice: go for the one with the long term impact and benefits (Virtue), don’t get distracted with short term emotions (Pleasure). Then stick with your choice and prepare for having made the wrong choice. That is dealing with uncertainty. Read more in DECISIVE, the latest book of Chip and Dan Heath, study the painting by Sebastiano Ricci or learn from the life of Hercules.
