Chapter 12. Results of your decisions > Review your decisions

Review your decisions

You gain experience every time you make a decision, but you won't learn from your experience unless you make an effort to examine what contributed to the success or failure of your decisions. You should review all your decisions, regardless of the outcome. You can learn both from decisions that turned out well and from those that didn’t.

People usually prefer to look only at decisions that were successful. They might feel that examining unsuccessful decisions is a waste of time, because they believe they have all the knowledge they need. Others might be threatened by the idea of examining bad decisions, because they do not want to reveal their shortcomings. Overconfidence and defensiveness can greatly inhibit people’s ability to learn from their decisions and to see their decision processes as they really occurred.
