Whenever you see a successful business, someone has made a courageous decision.

That’s a quote from my management hero – Peter Drucker. You have to be courageous in making an “intelligent” decision. But what if you cannot decide? The answer comes from a thought-provoking scene in Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s tale, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Young Alice comes to a fork in the road and asks the Cheshire Cat which direction she should take. “‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.

“‘I don’t much care where –’ said Alice.

“‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you walk,’ said the Cat.”

This classic tale is retold in a different manner in my Feb 2, 2015 column in The Manila Times. Check my article titled “Morton’s Fork.”
