  • Life is full of decisions. Frank Borham said, “We make our decisions and then our decisions make us.” Daily we have to evaluate, decide and draw conclusions.

    The quality of your life is determined by the kind of decisions you make. Some decisions you regret making and others you feel good about. The possibility of error is always there, because we are human.
