Look for the Best Answers for You, Not the ‘Right’ Ones

*** begin quote ***
Best-for-you decisions concede that you can’t have all the information in the world at your finger tips, but that you can whittle down what’s relevant and essential. Your conclusions may or may not withstand the test of time, but they will always give you peace of mind through knowing that you whole-heartedly did what appeared best for you in the given moment, and none of us can do any better than that.

I’m not sure that I agree.
Of course, every decision ever made was done with imperfect dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom). And, you can not go back and remake a decision. And “decisions” sometime get good results and bad results. Good results don’t imply a “good” decision; bad results don’t imply a “bad” decision.
“Gambling your last dollar you need on a roulette number” would be a “bad” decision even if you won the bet.
When I think of the “right” decision choice, I think moral, ethical, effective, and efficient. My rewards shouldn’t come into it. (They do sneak in.)
Maybe the author is thinking peer pressure. Or choosing the expected result.
Any way, a short read and maybe I have it wrong.
