Most people hate uncertainty to such a degree that they would accept a crappy but certain outcome over feeling uncertain.  In this episode of The Growth Equation Podcast, Brad and Steve discuss best practices for facing and dealing with uncertainty.  First, they dissect how we typically react to uncertain times, with feelings of anxiety, stress and discomfort; racing around for quick ways to solve the problem; using emotions (not facts or logic) as our guides.  Then, they offer a better way, by separating ourselves from the problem; making space to reflect; creating checklists and heuristics so that we are not stuck making reactive and emotional decisions.  In the end, the goal is not to make the right decision, but to make the best decision at the time with the information you have.
