After returning home I soon realized that the brown didn't coordinate nicely with the couch. I had to make another trip to the store, pleaded with my most charming smile and managed to exchange the brown with some burgundy pillows. Yap that looked quite lovely with the sofa!
This is an example of a decision that was easily reversed.
We often have to make decisions upon something in life. Those things could be important matters or trivial ones and sadly life doesn't always seem to allow a retreat option in decision making.
I may not be the best person to offer anyone sage advice regarding decision making. But I do think it is an issue that each of us are faced with on a daily basis throughout our lifetimes and thus worth discussion. I often tell people that caution is my middle name since I can sit on making a decision for a very long time before acting upon it.
We often make the decision thinking it’s the “right”/best/ suitable decision. Sometimes, it is. Other times, it turns out the be the wrong one. Yes, the right decision, turned out to be wrong.
What was the last decision that you made that turned out to be wrong? Looking back at it now, why did the decision turn out to be wrong?
1. Did you rush into the decision?
2. Did you let emotions sway the decision?
3. Didn’t you consider all possibilities?
4. Did you have sufficient information to make the decision?
5. Did other people influence the decision?
6. Did you take the “comfortable” decision because you were afraid of other options?
There ain't no answer. There ain't going to be any answer. There never
has been an answer. That's the answer. ~Gertrude Stein
