According to some business theorists, Western business people tend to rush into decisions without first looking at the real problem. I think that this is because as Westerners, we use our emotions too much in business. Everything becomes an emotional matter and often even political. There are so many cliches telling us to use our hearts and our gut reactions, although sometimes this doesn't always produce the best situations. In Eastern cultures, they are much better at separating their business from pleasure and I think that is our problem here. We often make good friends, golf with co-workers, and share our personal life with employees.. from my personal standpoint I am a supporter of this, but sometimes it can be a downfall. Maybe if we can somehow change this we can get rid of the sayings like "Ready, fire, aim" and be more productive as a community of business people.
