Boy, that is a loaded question! Decisions are being made all the time and mostly without us even realizing that we are making them! But 4 of our examples off the top of my head are;
- undergoing experimental surgery in another country to save our babies lives before they were born,
- allowing our son to have small amounts of radiation pumped through him for monitoring purposes,
- deciding to walk away from a family partnership with less than half the contracted amount
- leaving a very well paid job and career to be a better dadFunny thing is, these were easy decisions to make because they were the 'right thing to do' in the scheme of things.
Our most difficult business decision this month has been where to spend our outsourcing budget - we have a pretty strict set of business rules, a very tight budget and our business decisions are ethically and financially driven. But we do our homework, get the information that we need and get on with it.
In everyday life we make decisions based on what is best for our family - we have decided to stay in our not so cool house because it is best place for our family and we will be mortgage free in 9 years. Other people would decided to 'mortgage up' and renovate, others would move to another area or different house. (Others wouldn't have bought it just because it wasn't cool :o)
Don't know if this helps or not...or even if you are still awake - I tend to ramble a bit......
Our lives are all so different, the decisions that we make will be different depending on our stage of life - most 19 year olds would be horrified at the choices 35 year olds have, most 35 year olds would love the choices that a 19 year old has!
We also have different goals, different experiences and different limitations on what we are prepared to sacrifice ....ask the person that is trying to lose weight but just can't give up that daily vanilla latte or the person that has $5 left in their cash budget and sees that this weeks lottery draw has reached $6 million.....
Ok way too far now - it's almost a blog post....
