Managing a Business and making decisions are definitely not a cakewalk. Once you have a very clearly defined objective, conducting brainstorming sessions and visualizing the ideas, doing a reality check would be beneficial. Avoid common mistakes such as overestimating or underestimating other sources of information and relying too much on expert view. Following your gut feeling is also not an option to be taken too lightly.
Time is one constraint that has to be kept in mind throughout.
