The Best We Can Do

The best we can do is to make the best decisions possible with the knowledge and resources we have at the time.

I’ve believed this for a long time. I still do. I have found, however, that there needs to be something added.

Obviously, we can’t make good decisions with inaccurate or incomplete information. If we make decisions based solely on what we already know, or think we know, we might not be making the best decision possible. We need to take the responsibility to search for additional, accurate, information.

You would think that in the information age this would be easy. Not so much. And that is because there is a great deal of disinformation and misinformation in the world. It becomes extremely important that we look at new information with an open mind and with the willingness to evaluate it critically. We need to make sure our sources are credible. We need to think about what we are reading and hearing.

A question to ask yourself is: “Am I truly looking for information, or am I just looking for affirmation of what I already believe?”
