Today, following the concept of taking action has almost become like a religion of its own, like a clan that you can join solely for the purpose of taking action together. There are probably thousands of business coaches that have devoted themselves to teaching this concept to others. And while it may seem like common sense to some people, or another business coaching cliché to others, believe it or not, it is what most people lack.

Decision-making: How to Make the Right Decisions?

Writing my last post about how I became a vegetarian left me thinking about how some decisions lead to positive outcomes, while some lead to not so positive ones.
