I recently read “Extreme Productivity” by Robert Pozen and was particularly moved by the chapter about using your personal values and morals to guide your decision-making. He quoted investor/philanthropist Warren Buffett, “It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.” Sound advice, indeed. The book is excellent and I highly suggest you give it a read.
A day after finishing the book, I stumbled on this article in the Wall Street Journal which echoes many of the same ideas: How to Inspire Trust – WSJ.com http://ow.ly/pFHTH
By focusing on always doing the right things right, you will find decision-making becomes much easier!
