Last night’s awesome performance by Mick Jagger and Jeff Beck instantly had me remembering my friend Dave MacMillan. David has been a friend for roughly 28 years, and even though we don’t see each other as often anymore (he lives in Toronto, and I’m in California) he’s the type of friend that no matter how much time goes between seeing each other, we just pick up where we left off. Long-time camping buddy & canoe partner we’ve weathered family events and marriage breakups, and I always know that if I needed David, he’d be there.
Often, decisions and compromises must be made in projects large and small. Experienced decision makers surround themselves with factual data so that they can weigh the benefits and risks of any crucial decision.
