Important Decisions

There are many important decisions that we are asked to make in our life. We need to take the time to sort out the questions and weigh the significance. For some, we are able to make a good choice based on past experience or bonafide assessment of the potential outcomes.

Its probably because the pastor or the businessman stands out from the crowd and they are more successful in what they do. People should be rewarded for their efforts.

How about the army pay a bonus to officers who are performing well ?

I've seen some officers really put in a good effort and get great results and some that have the opposite effect and they get paid the same. Unfair I say !
