Those who adorn rose-colored glasses are destined to live a life below their fullest possibility. Why? Because the ability to see things as they really are and face the brutal facts is necessary to make a good decision. And yet one good decision is never enough to achieve the success that you so desire.
People and organizations become successful by not making just one good decision but by making a series of good decisions. This succession of good decisions builds upon each other, accelerating you on your success journey.
Even if you do not always make good decisions, bad decisions will not be detrimental, as long as you truly accept and understand the brutal facts. How do you get the brutal facts? Surround yourself with honest people. And create an environment where those people respect you and know that you desire their brutal honesty.
