Strategic decisions or choices have to be made without emotion, tactical reactions are all emotional. We have seen that played out with the never-Trump movement.

An NBC employee screaming at a Disney animatronic of Trump disrupting a family venue. That about sums it up.

It's never a question of like, but rather a question of will it succeed. I've been a CEO for many years, and the one thing I can say, you cannot get emotional. That part is hard. There are many days when you have to have ice water running through your veins. As Bob Kraft always said, "you can't fall in love with your players". Because that time to part ways is inevitable.

Being "for" or "against" is irrelevant. Making choices is simply logic, pros v. cons, cost v. benefit. In business, as in life the only constant is the rate of change. The dynamics of your environment are constantly changing, something you cannot control, but you can adapt and always look to see what is coming.

Every decision can be broken down to it's base parameters, once you eliminate emotion.

Last fall, the choice was Moral Outrage v. Dishonest Corruption. Did I admire Trump? No. But dishonesty is morally wrong, and that made it a logical choice.

Great question!
