We all have to make difficult decisions and judgements, both at home and at work. Most big decisions are not easy ones to make. We know that the results and repercussions of our decisions can have an unwelcome and painful effect for others, certainly in the short term, and that big decisions rarely only affect the person making the decision. On the other hand, we cannot always just maintain a status quo, avoiding the challenges, avoiding the changes, that our decisions will trigger.
