On evaluating decisions

A topic which I've addressed on more than one occasion is the evaluation of decisions, and the issue of whether the outcome of events following a decision is the proper way to evaluate the decision or the decision-making process. It isn't. Which I've summarized now, in a way that I like.

An unlikely outcome can condemn a good decision, but cannot turn it into a bad one. It can redeem a bad decision, but cannot turn it into a good one.
