    I wouldn't say it means "an excellent choice", though it could be or could have been.

    I would describe "an inspired choice" as a choice that someone has a very good or positive feeling about, and therefore makes that particular choice. An inspired choice, to me, has more to do with how one feels than the actually quality of the choice. However, we should hope that our inspired choices are, as well, excellent or at least good choices.



    PROESL out.

    One to beam up Scotty.

    Aye Captain.

    So am I right by saying 'I made the choice based on inspiration' ?

    Yes, that's a correct sentence.

    You don't need to post again if you don't get the answer you want. It is better to keep to the same thread and ask for more clarification.
