Decisions you are making now will have long term ramifications.
I watched a new movie the other day called the “Old Guard” on Netflix about some immortal warriors a la “The Highlander”. I thought about it as a result of a discussion I had with a developer. We were talking about making decisions on code and platforms and how they could have long term impact on your ability to do something later.
In the movie, the main character (who is now thousands of years old) becomes jaded because she is trying to do good but doesn’t think she has had any impact over her life. At the end of the movie she is shown the impact her decisions had hundreds of years later which opens her eyes.
Which leads me back to decisions we make every day. Even the smallest ones can be hugely important and many times we don’t have the context or the data to feel completely comfortable with them and yet we still have to make them. Unfortunately, companies aren’t immortal, and a wrong decision can be bad news.
For most people I would imagine decisions are made with a mix of experience, data and advice. But is that enough? How are you ensuring your decisions lead to growth? #Management #Technology #Analytics
