Decisions Decisions

A friend at work shared that someone he respected once told him, "Never make a decision when you're angry or excited." I think that's good advice.

What might be out there interfering with my decision making ability right now? Maybe the primaries and all things election related? The Republicans are trying to make us angry like they always do and the Democrats are trying to excite us like they always try to do around election time. They're all sales people. They're not trying to help us make good decisions. They want to get elected.

What's interesting is how far they'll go. Dr. Seuss wrote, "Oh the Places You'll Go" just before he died. If he wrote a book about politicians, he might have written, "Oh the Things You'll Say." If I'm angry or excited when election day rolls around, I might just stay home and avoid making a bad decision.
