Every Friday, I share with you one principle that has inspired me.
In this episode, I share with you one principle by Naval Ravikhant: "If You Can't Decide, the Answer is No."
In our daily life, we have to make multiple decisions daily. It becomes really hard when you don’t have any key points based on what you will make that particular decision. Our understanding of the world around us is largely shaped by the core principles we have accepted. Principles recognize what is true and help us apply truth to new or unknown situations. A good set of principles will enable us to make decisions quickly, even if our situation is completely new.
Principles Friday will help you share the principles of successful entrepreneurs, founders, and big thinkers.

Welcome to Principles Friday, where I share one principle that can help you in your life and business.
Today we have on the show Naval Ravikhant.
“If you can’t decide, the answer is no."
What a simple principle.
Naval Ravikant" is a well-known entrepreneur, investor, and author who has been a prominent figure in the startup and tech communities for many years. He is known for his insights on topics such as personal development, business, and investing, and is the author of the book "The Almanack of Naval Ravikant: A Guide to Wealth and Happiness."
The statement "If you can't decide then it's a no" is a principle that Naval has discussed in the context of decision-making. Essentially, the idea is that if you're struggling to make a decision, then it's probably not a good fit for you, and you should move on to something else.
Naval Ravikant advises that if you are undecided about a major decision like getting married, taking a job, buying a house, moving to a new city, etc., don’t do it. You don’t want to lock yourself into something if you’re undecided because you actually have far more options than you think you do.
Here’s an excerpt from his Almanack:
If you cannot decide, the answer is no. And the reason is, modern society is full of options. There are tons and tons of options. We live on a planet of seven billion people, and we are connected to everybody on the internet. There are hundreds of thousands of careers available to you. There are so many choices. You’re biologically not built to realize how many choices there are.
Overall, Naval's insights on decision-making can be useful for anyone looking to improve their ability to make wise choices in their personal or professional lives.That concludes it for this Friday.
Remember: " If you can’t decide, the answer is no"
