How important is outcome to the strength of a decision?

How important is outcome to the strength of a decision?

I can think of a lot of scenarios in life where I have seen perceived injustices pursued in a way that has only served to make the given situation much worse, more often than not for the person that feels discriminated against - as well as aggravating the accused.

So how do we accurately discern when action is necessary versus when turning the other cheek is the optimum approach?

Or is a large element of luck involved as is inherent with all human behaviours to differing degrees?

Equally does it require an assessment of whether our actions are to be based on principles of utilitarianism or a more conventional conceptual ideal of justice.

If someone made you a coffee with rancid milk, would you let it go? Or would you make a complaint? What if my scenario occurred…?

Have a good weekend, :slight_smile:
