When a king sits in judgment, he weighs all the evidence, distinguishing the bad from the good.
This means stepping back, listening, observing, taking plenty of notes, going home, studying, doing research, praying, and getting advice from wise people.
When I’m the person in authority, slowing down and being thorough is my job. It’s not optional. Whether you’re over an organization, you’re need to start by leading yourself well. When making life impacting decisions, slow down and be thorough. Hasty judgment makes for bad decisions that can have expensive repercussions.
