Writing Prompt: Decisions,decisions

How are you likely to make an important decision__ by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?

 

If I have to make an important decision I do not rely on my gut feeling,to me if it is important I must use reasoning and not gut.

I have made quite a few decisions in my life, they were always based on careful reasoning, I didn’t want to do something which will haunt my entire life.

When I was a student my aim was to pursue my studies as long as I can depend on my brothers to help me financially. I was  fortunate they did not disappoint me. 

Then came a time when I wanted to study further and felt it was not fair on my part to expect help from my brothers any more. I did what in my mind was the right thing,I applied for a scholarship. I thought it out and knew it was time  for me to see if I can be independent.  Luckily I got what I wanted and within a year I was qualified to teach. I chose my path of teaching and never regretted it.

True there were obstacles I independently decided what I must do. I had siblings whom I could ask, I wasn’t sure I could use their advice. 

After completing my education I took the teaching job, I quit when I felt the particular institution failed to satisfy me!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. It’s interesting, isn’t it, how we come to make decisions. We have many capabilities to do this, some probably we haven’t yet even discovered.

    All good wishes,

    robert
