Management Principle from Dune
There’s no real mystery about this at the
moment. This is what we want now. It may prove wrong later, but we’ll
correct that when we come to it.
Too often we act as if every decision is weighty and permanent. Of course some decisions are weighty and permanent, but most are not. Wisdom is knowing which decisions are and which are not. Sometimes it pays to not try to look too far ahead, conceding that if you’re wrong “we’ll correct that when we come to it.”
