Between decision making and hesitating =)

Hi fellow MyLotters... Just wondering. Do you hesitate when you're in the middle of deciding or do you just go on and make your decision and think about the consequences after? On my part, it would depend on the gravity of the situation. If it's a life-changing decision, I make it a point to weigh things over and look over the pros and cons with my decision. I don't want to make rash judgments which I might regret later on.

In making a decision, it is best to foresee the possible effect. However, its relevance should also be considered. If it takes us too long to arrive at a logical solution to a problem presented or act on a certain situation, then the badly needed solution at that moment might already be too late and would no longer be of use. At any rate, we should understand that as decision-makers, we must hold ourselves responsible on whatever would be the outcome, and never point our fingers to others once things did not turn out to be in our favor.

i have trained my mind, over time, to always look for the solution in everything, if i have the time i will think about it first just to make sure, but with everything, my mind automatically seeks the answer and it doesn't usually take me long to find the best answer. even if later on down the road you think or realize you have made the wrong decision, you have to remember that you made the best decision you could based on what was going on at that time

I always make decision without thinking about the consequences. My decisions always make an impact because what i say carries some weight. So others have to think about it before commenting on my decision.

I am terrible at making decisions. It depends on the level of importance. If it is a decision where it wouldn't matter if I choose blue or red, then I just make a decision and move on. But if it is a challenging decisions where the consquences are there to last, then I take quite a while to decide, sometimes too long. I find myelf making lists to weigh out all the advantages and disadvantages.

When I'm younger I used to be a reckless lad. I do things with out thinking much. I'm strong that's what i'm saying to myself. But I realized later that life doesn't work like that. You have to think many times before doing something. Because I know that what i'm going to decide for today. Will have a big impact in my life few months or one year later.
