Decision-making: A Layman’s Guide To Making The Right Decisions

In the 21st century, it feels like we are constantly pressured to make pseudo-important choices and each of these aforementioned choices is made out to be pivotal. Right from our first national examination, as a generation, we are hastily yet poorly advised that choosing the right high school would shape rest of our lives then choosing the right subjects, then the right campus then the right course then the right wife. It’s a vicious soul-sucking cycle. It has always felt that we are a decision away from ending in a heap of tears, poverty and pure wretchedness.

 

Fear not I am here to change that. While still in that wretched frame of mind I have come up with a detailed common man’s guide for choices and choice making. By the end of this article, you should have learned and even practiced what it is to make a good choice and how I will turn that good to great. This article will tell you how to pick the right wife, job, car and even child! Be prepared ladies and gentlemen I am about to change your lives.

 

The golden rule in the art of great choices is, to hell with it.

 

Choices are more like journeys and less like hearts; they’re different and varied in intensity and girth. So choosing one over the other isn’t being wrong it’s being different. Our ability to vary these choices over a lifetime is actually a show of brilliance. The clever man is the one who is able to at every juncture pick the road of best fit, one that will ensure the greatest personal gratification. So then dear friends armed with this new knowledge go forth and choose away. Make your choices as you go or methodically think them through. Either way, make them.

And now as I sign off I will insert a clever and thoughtful quote preferably by a famous person that will coincidentally support the above argument.

 

“But the Hebrew word, the word timshel- ‘thou mayest’- that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’ – it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not’ John Steinbeck.

 

DISCLAIMER: The above advice is but the words of a  layman; they may or may not work.
