Throughout our lives, we are faced with difficult decisions that must be made. But instead of making a deliberate decision, we simply choose what is most convenient or logical. A job you don’t enjoy just to make ends meet can quickly turn into your career path. There are many people who decide to get married because they’ve been together for a long time. As opposed to making decisions based on what they believe or what their standards require, they opt for what is quick and easy. Decisions that are made quickly are often misunderstood as the result of intuition. Even though you know it’s wrong, you make the decision anyway because it is convenient.
How do you go about making decisions in your life?
Whether or not you mimic others is a matter of personal choice.
Choose the same courses and degrees that your friends do.
Why do some people get married after a long period of time with their significant other?
Buying a home is a common practice, so are you following suit?
Most people simply ‘do’ things rather than ‘think’ about them. They end up living the lives of others as a result. Think about your goals and aspirations when you’re faced with life’s big choices. Get to know who you are. Also, develop a process for making life-altering choices. Have a set of rules. For example, if you place your health and mental well-being above all else, you should avoid making decisions that could jeopardise that.
In other words, you won’t accept a job that you dislike because a job that you dislike has a negative effect on your mental health. You can’t be in a relationship with someone who isn’t interested in exercising, drinking alcohol, or eating healthfully if you value your health. For this reason, it is likely that you will take on the unhealthy standards of your partner because of your closeness.
Consciously make decisions about your life. Set the bar high. Live up to those standards. There is no better time or money than now to make this change. It’s better to spend some time figuring out what you want out of life rather than rushing into things. Identify the things that are most important to you and then make decisions accordingly.
