We can learn a lot about good decision-making by noting how Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger behaved after he realized that both engines on US Airways Flight 1549 had cut out.

For one, he didn’t dither. Sully ran through the options with his co-pilot and air traffic control, and finally announced to both, “We’ll be in the Hudson.”

Lesson: When a situation calls for it, you have to summon the courage to weigh your options, make a decision—right or wrong—and move on.
