Writing on Decision Making
- The problem at hand is deciding what is best for me between a well-paying job that allows me to be close to my family but which I don’t like and a less paying gig that I like, but which is a distance from my home. By making the right decision, I will have solved the problem.
- To solve the problem or make the right decisions, I need to know the salary difference between my current job and the new one. Moreover, I need to consider my current financial obligations and possible salary increments associated with the new job.
- Both family and work-related values will influence my decision. They include my commitment to my family and being there for each and every member of my family. Moreover, I value recognition. I like to receive attention for the work that I do. Additionally, I treasure creativity. I will likely choose the less paying job as long as it gives me the freedom to exercise my ideas. How I view money, success, and power will also influence my decision.
- My objectives in solving this problem and making the decision would be to help me lead a happy life knowing that I made the best choice possible after considering all the alternatives and factors involved.
- There are other few alternatives available. First, I could look for another job that I am certain I would like and that would allow me to be closer to my family. Second, I could give up the new and the old jobs and start a different career that I like and where I would be paid well and, above all, have the opportunity to be close to my family.
- Deciding to keep my older job will mean low motivation and minimal enjoyment of the work that I do. Moreover, doing a job that I don’t like will make it difficult for me to ascend the professional ladder. The interesting but less paying job, on the other hand, will raise the level of my motivation. However, it may affect my personal life given that I will be far away from my family most of the time.Writing on Decision Making
