Decision. Decision. Decision. We made it everyday whether we are consciously making it or otherwise. We put our thoughts and weigh the pros and cons. Justification may come in for every action we are going to take. Ever thought of the consequences?
We could be making countless decisions without realizing it. In simple cases like deciding which route to drive home or what to put on dinner table tonight.
Life without making decision is impossible. I recalled my former boss saying ‘There is no good decision or bad decision. But is it the right decision at this point of time?'. The most crucial aspect is to anticipate the impact in the sense of benefit or 'aftermath'! In IT term, the 'If Then Else' statement! There seems some truth in it unless a decision is made based on emotions like annoyance, jealousy or hatred.
At times, we could be cornered to agree upon something. I think the best way is just leave the conversation hanging so that it can delay the decision making process. Instead of upsetting the opponent and uttering something you would be regretting later, I’d rather take a step backwards. As we disarm, the battle is obviously less interesting at the opponent end and the person may just cool down. Some decision is not urgent but important hence do spare some effort to do some homework before harping on it.
One man’s meat could be another man’s poison. I made a choice yesterday. Perhaps this choice is going to upset a bunch of my old friends (I am sorry if I disappoint you!) but this action is something I will not regret later. Certain things in life are beyond our control. We can plan for the best and at the same time, need to prepare for the worst. Nobody likes to intentionally upset their loved ones. So do you and me.
I believe putting this up does not get me any closer to psychology guru but this was just the thought running in my mind. Guess good to put down in words.
