    Oct 3 2013: Yes. You cannot learn from not making a decision. There is no outcome or result to observe if you don't make a decision and decide to do nothing. Making any decision, good or bad, can be learned from. Most people learn more from bad decisions because it sticks with them for a longer time (so they think/reflect on it more) and you can improve and learn from a bad decision more than from a good decision.

    Would you like some examples? Almost any situation works, but I can come up with some if you want.

    Thanks for the question!
