Better Decisions

The printing press meant faster transfer of information than writing by hand.

Radio was immediate and brought us active as well as passive listening.

TV eliminated a lot of the thinking – pictures did more of the work.

Digital is instant, totally eliminating lag time.

But lag time is necessary to make good decisions.

Just because we have the technology to communicate instantly in real time doesn’t mean it helps make better decisions.

Our first idea is often the worst idea.

Our impulse to react when we feel threatened often turns into regret.

In spite of technological advances, time is still the best asset for making decisions.
