I just read a fascinating article by Khalil Smith called,  Why Our Brains Fall for False Expertise, and How to Stop It.  I urge you to read the entire article (click here).  In it he points out the benefit of being intentional about writing down ideas and steps for weighing options and boiling down information from which we can make wise decisions. This goes a long way to insure the best path forward is uncovered.

“Get explicit, and get it in writing. One fairly easy intervention is to instruct employees to get in the habit of laying out, in writing, the precise steps that led to a given decision being made. You also can write out the process for your own decision making.”                       – Khalil Smith
