Making good decisions is very important. But it’s also important to know how long you will take to make those “right” decisions.

Enjoy the story:


Luke’s journey came to a screeching halt at a crossroad. Luke wanted to make the “right” choice. Both the roads seems to have a share of positives and negatives. Luke kept thinking for a long time. It was getting dark and a drunk truck driver accidentally ran over and killed him.



1. A mini saga is a story told in exactly 50 words. Not 49 or 51 but exactly 50.

I can completely identify with this story Rajesh. I have taken a couple of right decisions at the wrong time which basically made them wrong decisions… Whatever it is timing of decisions makes the same decision right or wrong…!!!

As usual mini sagas rock.. :)

Thanks Ananth.

Timing and Luck both are important. One of them is sort of under our control and the other one is left to GOD :)

Quite a thoughtful story you’ve shared here, Raj!

When I read about making decisions, I always remember the way Hemingway would make up his mind: He would write down two columns. He would write down the positive sides on the left and negative sides on the right. Sooner or later, one side would prevail and the decision is much easier to take.

All the best,

Thanks Dimitar for sharing Hemingway’s approach.
