John S. Hammond, Ralph L. Keeney, Howard Raiffa Quotes
|Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by John S. Hammond,
Ralph L. Keeney, Howard Raiffa:
"The connection among the decisions you make lies not in what you're
deciding, but in how you decide."
"Ask yourself what you most want to accomplish and which of your interests,
values, concerns, fears and aspirations are most relevant to achieving
your goal. Thinking through your objectives will give direction to
your decision making."
"What you decide today could influence your choices tomorrow, and your
goals for tomorrow should influence your choices today."
"First and foremost, always focus your thinking where it matters most."
"Sometimes, the simple act of setting out your problem, objectives,
alternatives, consequences, and tradeoffs, as well as any uncertainties,
risks or linked decision factors, will fully clarify the decision, pointing
the way to the smart choice."
"Be proactive. Seek decision opportunities everywhere."
"Sometimes, the process of thinking through and writing out your objectives
can guide you straight to the smart choice - without your having to do
a lot of additional analysis."
"Whenever you feel that your decision process is bogging down or heading
off course, always focus back on your objectives. They'll keep you
on the right track."
"Remember the old saying, 'If you don't know where you're going, any
route will get you there'."
"Setting high aspirations stretches your thinking. High aspirations
force you to think in entirely new ways, rather than sliding by with modest
changes to the status quo."
"One idea leads to another, and the more ideas you entertain, the more
likely you are to find a good one."
"When you choose, you may know what might happen, but you won't know
what will happen."
"Clearly defining the possible outcomes or categories of outcomes will
help you in judging the chance or likelihood that each outcome will occur."
"When a good opportunity feels too risky, share the risk with others."
"All decisions affect the future, of course."
"Given time, too, your subconscious will aid your decision process,
mulling over the problem and prompting solutions even as you attend to
"Most important, always remember, the only way to exert control over your life is through your decision making."
