Default 20 Captivating Quotes on Decisions and Decision Making

I recently accumulated 65 of the best quotes I could find on indecision, decision making, and the power of decisions.

See all 65 Quotes here

Here are 20 good ones, some that aren't so common (if you have any good ones, please add! Thank you)

“Where there is no decision there is no life.”- JJ Dewey

“Choices are the hinges of destiny.” – Pythagoras

“The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision.” – Maimonides

“To get anywhere, or even to live a long time, a man has to guess, and guess right, over and over again, without enough data for a logical answer.” – Robert Heinlein

“Sir, What is the secret of your success?” a reporter asked a bank president.
“Two words.”
“And, sir, what are they?”
“Good decisions.”
“And how do you make good decisions?”
“One word.”
“And sir, what is that?”
“Experience.”
“And how do you get Experience?”
“Two words.”
“And, sir, what are they?”
“Bad decisions.”
- Unknown author

“Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.” – Jim Collins

“Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse to change any and every part of your life in an instant.” – Anthony Robbins

“Decision is a sharp knife that cuts clean and straight; indecision, a dull one that hacks and tears and leaves ragged edges behind it.”- Gordon Graham

“The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.” – Sun Tzu

“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

How To Decide:

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” “Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you’ll find your treasure.”” – Paulo Coelho

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.” – Paulo Coelho

“If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.”- Unknown author

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” – Jim Rohn

“When you cannot make up your mind which of two evenly balanced courses of action you should take – choose the bolder.” – William Joseph Slim

“A problem clearly stated is a problem half solved.”- Dorothea Brande

“We must make the choices that enable us to fulfill the deepest capacities of our real selves.”- Thomas Merton

“A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.” – Ghandi

“Changing our decision sets up a bad habit. It reinforces decision-making as an expression of bewilderment and ignorance, instead of wisdom and freedom.” – Sakyong Mipham

“The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.” – Buddha

Making an incorrect decision is better than making no decision at all.

I liked the two rabbits one too! And it reminded me of something I once read about forcing yourself to focus on one thing at a time:

Be like a postage stamp and stick to it until you reach your destination!

I like to make my own quotes,

"if you wanna be poor, be like everybody else...in complete misery. You wanna be filthy rich, you gotta be the one who stands up and changes things. The one who always gets laughed at and dissed, in the end i'll have the last laugh!"

or my personal favorite

"get out the way, I GOT THIS!"
