When it comes to business decisions, the best ones usually make the least sense. From Facebook buying Instagram for $1 billion to Amazon entering the cloud computing business, these decisions didn’t seem to make much sense, but in the long run, they have proven to be enormously valuable. So it’s important to realize that while all decision might not seem like good ones, they may have their purpose in the grander scheme of things.
- There is little value in making decisions that others have made before you.
- The best decisions don’t come from ideas that other companies have already profited on.
- The decisions you make in business and your personal life might sound ridiculous to some, but for you they are just right.
“These decisions made little sense when they were made, but make all the sense in the world today. If they were obvious at the time, they wouldn’t have proven so valuable.”
