Act, Fail, Succeed, Understand

The Journey of Decision-Making

Hello, fellows!

Today, I want to share some thoughts on my mind lately, especially as we navigate the complex decision-making world. I’ve realized that understanding is at the heart of every good decision we make, whether in our roles as CTOs, tech leads, business owners, or any other position that requires us to look at the big picture.

I’ve learned that to understand something deeply, we must go through a cycle of acting, failing, succeeding, and reflecting. This isn’t just a theory for me; it’s something I’ve experienced firsthand.

Sometimes, I’ve made decisions that didn’t pan out the way I’d hoped, but each failure has taught me invaluable lessons. Conversely, every success has reinforced what works and guided me toward better choices.

It’s not about getting it right every time; it’s about continuously learning and growing.

It’s easy to feel pressured to make quick decisions, especially when time is of the essence. But I’ve found that taking the time to learn and understand before deciding can make all the difference. It’s not about getting it right every time; it’s about continuously learning and growing.

I hope my reflections today inspire you to embrace this learning cycle in your own journey. Let’s continue to act, fail, succeed, and, most importantly, understand.

By the way, I have just started to create additional content on YouTube.

I would appreciate your support on YouTube as well! 😀
