What decisions do people make every day?
The first decision to spring to my mind is that people have to decide what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Of course, they make a lot of other decisions as well, such as taking which means of transportation to work, whether to finish this piece of work here at the office or take it back home, etc. I think life is about making choices, so we are used to making decisions. Ifs just hard to always make the right one.
Why do people make decisions?
Very often because they have to. Even if someone is bad at making decisions or isn‘t brave enough to do so on his or her own, he or she must make decisions from time to time. For instance, if you are grown up, then you have to decide what to eat for each meal on your own. You have to decide which courses to take for yourself, or what jobs to apply to after graduation. People have to make decisions because that’s just life.
Can children make decisions on their own?
It depends on what the decision is. If a child says he or she wants a book to read, of course I think it‘s appropriate and should be granted. If he or she wants a second ice-cream when they’ve already had one, I think that should not be encouraged. Parents should encourage children to think independently and make decisions on their own, but they should also watch out for these decisions, to see whether they are appropriate or not, and tell their children about it.
When do people change their decisions?
I think people change their minds very often. But that depends on character. I know some people are stubborn, or more serious, and they tend to stick to their decisions, whether they turned out to be good or not. Some people are more flexible and change their decisions if they think the decisions are not good enough. Decisions also change when circumstances change. For instance, I decided to go to work by bike the day before. However, it started raining in the morning and of course, I had to change my decision.
