1. We should try to decouple our assessment of the quality of a decision from the outcome (AKA "resulting").
2. We're wired to always be looking for ways to support our internal narrative that we 'are doing good'. When we make a decision and things go well, it's because "we're smart". When we make a decision and things go poorly, we blame bad luck. This impairs our ability to learn when we make bad decisions (once we start attributing poor outcomes to bad luck, we're divesting ourselves of blame).
3. We can improve... but to do that we have to adopt new habits when making decisions (see highlights for some examples).
