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!
