If you can convince yourself you are too busy then you too can make worse decisions.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

  1. It's all in the way you hold your mind.
  2. You do not have to take the time required to make good decisions. It is your prerogative to make lousy decisions and nobody can take that right away from you.
  3. There's probably no better way to make lousy decisions than holding in your mind the thoughts, "I am too busy" and "I don't have time".
  4. If you put your mind to it you will find your mind will warm to the habit of "I am too busy" and "I don't have time". And soon, very soon, you will be able to make really lousy decisions.

"Persistence involves adherence to a purpose clean through to a goal."

Frank Channing Haddock

'Power of Will', (1910)
