Decisions are made on a daily basis within every position at every company. Decisions regarding company policy can often create the conflicts that were discussed within last week's forum. This week, we also read about making financial decisions within a company. When making a decision that affects multiple departments within the company, it is important to think about the long-term benefits or challenges. Think back over your professional life…discuss a decision that was made by your company that had an effect on you or your department directly. What challenges were created by this decision? Was your company prepared for these challenges? How was this decision communicated to the employees? What could have been improved within this process? While you are not required to formally cite your sources within the forum, you should make sure that you are incorporating information from the readings into your responses. Your responses should clearly show that you have read the material.
Interesting to cite Peter Ludlow.
When people tell me what to do, or give me advice on something, there is no doubt that I take that into account in decision making, but I ultimately make the decision myself, because that is what I believe is right. I believe that you should think for yourself, make your own decisions, and live your own life.
Decision Making: Overcoming Serious Indecisiveness
Do your homework, eat your vegetables, pick up your clothes, my parents would always tell me. Sometimes I just want to say to them, SHUT UP! But of course I don’t. They tell me to eat my broccoli, and even though I like broccoli, I don’t eat it. I sometimes would just intentionally do the opposite of what they tell me, because I HATE how they would hound me ceaselessly, and it annoyed me so much.
How to Make Wealth – Paul Graham
Growing up, I was always told by my parents what to do, what’s right, the best decision in a certain situation. And to be frank, I hated it. To this day, I very much dislike being told what to do, which is why I believe in making your own decisions.
