Pragmatic Decision-Making with a "Triple Bottom Line"

The Triple Bottom Line (TBL) is an approach to making decisions better. TBL strives to look broadly at the costs and benefits of different choices, focus on the most significant ones, quantify them when possible, and ultimately make sound decisions: ones that are efficient and fair. A guide for Pragmatic Decision Making with Triple Bottom Line can be referenced for more detail.

Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives—choice, not chance, determines your destiny.

—Aristotle, 350 BCE
