You’ll never have all the information you need to make a decision. If you did, it would be a foregone conclusion, not a decision.–unknown

This is one pole of a polarity. The polarity is making decisions based on data (reality based) and making them based on gut feel (vision based) There are benefits to both approaches as well as negative impacts for overdoing either one. Waiting to decide is one way of overdoing reality based decision making. It’s actually a way of avoiding responsibility for a poor decision. At worst it results in decision by default. Overdoing the vision based process is like ready, fire, aim. Sometimes you completely miss the target resulting in something worse than no decision at all.
