Whether it is one of the smallest decisions, or those of the higest stake, it is the decision that is talked about and recorded. If your decision leads to success, it gets celebrated. However, if does not, you can very easily become the victim. This is the time when the reasons assume higher significance than the decision and help you clarify your stand. More importantly they can help you analyze your decisions at a later time and help you learn from failures. Even if others remember your decisions, it is important for you that you remember the reasons as well.
