trying to put these words together properly, but I don't know what the best way to say it is:
an explanation for any given decision does not exclude the possibility of a stronger alternative.
the ability to explain a decision does not mean it is the best decision. Even if the explanation is great.
during the feedback process, listen to all of the comments before giving your explanation. Most of the time you won't be there to explain it afterwards anyway- so you better figure out what is troubling your trusted confidant before getting stubborn and set on an idea. If it is not working, there must be another solution.
the possibilities are endless!
but yes, you eventually have to make a decision.
This is all part of the process.
