One of the things people say as a cliche is to live in the present and not in the past. But there has to be a careful balance struck between being stuck in the past, or as The Decision Book describes it being caught in a memory-driven model, and the future.
There are also real dangers becoming a dreamer hoping that the future turns out better than the present or the past will leave you failing to make the right decisions in the here and now.
Not easy to get that balance right but the book is good at highlighting the dangers of both a memory and a future dreamer model.
There will be more posts about this book throughout the month with a chance for a lucky insidebooks reader to win a copy of the book.
