The Art of Decision Making…


When placed in a uncomfortable, complex situation by life and asked to decide the future course of action, we become jittery…  decision making is afterall, an art…those who are fluent in this, sail through, others, and the majority have to put up with the repercussions….

In such a situation, we have lot of factors trying to influence our decision. For example,

– What will people think and how will they accept it?

– What if the things don’t turn out as I thought they would (if I decide to take one course of action)?

Coupled with dwindling confidence and clouds of uncertainity, we only end up thinking too much about the decision. How do we get out of this situation?

Simple..by justifying our decision…

Usually, we become unsure by too much thought on the decision and end up in a deadlock…then..we share it with someone close, like a friend and tell them what we want to do, get their support and voila!…we are ready to take the decision…

Lets read the finer print.. I am not saying, we just can’t take a decision…Actually, there is some kind of guilt attached to the decision we are about to take…Majorly, its the guilt that makes us unsure and pushes us to think in various dimensions….so, by confirming our decision with a friend, we reduce/remove the guilt attached and are much happier and find it easy now to take the decision…

However, over a period of time, and past some ‘n’ number of decisions, we become more self dependant in taking the decisions….What I have seen is, only decisions pertaining to relationship and career put you in such situations….that is, you seek out advice and justify your decisions…

otherwise, its mostly we, on our own…
