De-caedere

De in Latin means “off”, and Caedere in Latin means “cut”.

Decisions are necessary for life to go on. A cut is painful and scary, but it’s also a release. Penalty shootouts in the soccer World Cup are cruel to the losing side, but a decision has to be made to continue the tournament and proceed to the next round. The cut is cruel but necessary.

That’s why we agree to abide by legal judgements. Humans need closure to move on.

Decisions are a forcing function and push us out of no man’s land and onto the next thing.

Make the cut, don’t look back. Go.
