Making a Decision
A situation that I can recently recall that was a difficult change to make would have to be, switching to a new job. It was a stressful situation with relocating problems, the fact I had school I was attending and a family I had to think of. All these various things had me thinking a lot about really passing up on a opportunity that might be best for and family.
I had a new opportunity presented to me that would pay a lot more, and gave me a chance to move up from the position I was in. I could move up in the company. It was in a very nice area with a nice neighborhood ...view middle of the document...
Even though it was tough, I had to make a choice. After weighing all the positives and negatives, I seriously thought about it, and I decided I would have to turn down the offer. It just wasn’t a good time to up and move with everything that was going on at home and with my family. So I decided I would stay and work on the life I already had at home.
I went to my boss and told them my decision. Even though they thought this was a good opportunity for me, they understood my reasons for staying. They even told me that they position would stay open for me if I ever decided to take it. Which of course was a big shock for me, it was definitely not expected.
When thinking back on the decision I made, I wouldn’t have done it any different. Since then I got a raise, and made new opportunities for myself here in my home state. I learned that it’s not the location that makes you successful, it’s what you do on a daily basis wherever you are that depends on your success. I think my decision would’ve been way different if I had these steps because these steps actually make you think and allow you to think other options. They also give a step by step way to help you end up with a logical decision.
Even though the steps that I learned and the text would be extremely helpful. I still would have stuck with the same results because in the end it’s what’s best for me.
