Scrap it

If we’re smart, we’ll never shy away from making decisions. And if we’re really smart, we’ll try to make as many (important decisions) as possible.

Sometimes we’ll make the wrong decision and realize during the course of the failure that the decision was wrong. We may even know what the right answer is and envision ourselves making the right one next time.

But the true test of our learning is being able to determine when it’s worth it to scrap everything and start over. The answer isn’t always obvious.
