The What When Where How and Why of Decisions

Leave a Comment
Welcome to another article. This time I'll be talking about “The What, When, Where, How, and Why of Decision Making.”

Decision-making is like a two-pronged fork and it generally involves either being against or for a particular line of thought, idea, or concept.

What?

To give you a little perspective, a decision is something that you make or take when you are given with more than one choices or opportunities. It involves you looking at the pros and the cons of a situation or opportunity and go with either one based on what you have inferred and how you have inferred it. To put it crudely, it basically involves taking sides and being on one side or the other.

When?

Taking a decision generally involves the element of thought and being able to review the pros and the cons. Taking as a decision can happen at any time in your life and as many times as there are choices to be made. Every single day, you are provided with numerous opportunities and situations (be it small or big) where you have to make a decision. There are no set rules as to when you will make or take decisions.

Where?

There are so many opportunities and situations in your life that you make or take decisions consciously or unconsciously. You may even make or take decisions in your sleep. There is no specific place where you can, may, or will take decisions. As there are many stars in the night sky, there are numerous possibilities on the locations where you will take them.

How?

Taking a decision is a thought-provoking process. You have to know both the pros and the cons of your decisions to make a decision. You have to be well versed with the content matter in which you are taking the decision. You apply your mental prowess to the various and numerous thoughts, opportunities, possibilities that are in front of you and choose the best one based on their respective pluses and minuses and go with the one that you feel is the best one. It is basically thinking about what would be the best outcome of your decision and how you would plan on going ahead with it after you have taken it.

Why?

You basically take a decision so as to satisfy the parties to their respective thought processes. It is basically like saying I will be with you or with you for this reason, and this is the reason why I am doing this. You are basically telling them why you have chosen one over the other and why you have done so. It is like giving an explanation to a question.

Conclusion

No matter in what stage in life you are, where you are, how you are, or what you’re you will always have to make decisions that influence you and your surroundings and the ripple effects will go a long way in shaping your life. Whenever you make or take decisions, make sure that you think thoroughly and effectively on how, why, what, where is it that you’re making the decision.

You do not want to be in a situation later, where the decision that you have taken or made comes back to haunt you and you regret making that decision. Always try and look at both sides of the coin and choose whether you want heads or tails.

[AVOID] How to avoid Email Recruitment Scams [TIPS]

I still remember the day I created my first email address. It was a fad then to have an email address and a person not having one was, well, considered an outcast in a subliminal sense.

Over the past many years since opening my first email address and then many from various providers and giving it out, I've become infuriated with the amount of SPAM I receive daily most of which are people wanting to donate money to me, Banks giving me my lost relative's inheritance, winning various lotto/lotteries or sweepstakes many times over to simple recruitment scams.

Had I accepted the lotto/lotteries or sweepstakes, by now I would be the richest person on earth.

Today, I'm going to talk about email recruitment scams and the things to look out for and avoid them when you see these red flags.

Most of the times your email provider will filter them out and stop them from reaching your inbox altogether, but in the event that it does reach your inbox you should check once, if necessary, (unless you have hordes of them in your inbox) and delete them without remorse.

RED FLAG TIP # 1:

Always check from where the email came from (check out the email sender).




I have highlighted the places in red where the emails are not even generated from the company address. Do not, and I repeat, do not reply to these types of email address and they will get your information and would put it to bad use.

To see the actual email address press the small drop-down arrow box circled in green in the image above.


RED FLAG TIP # 2:

Secondly, recruitment companies will never ever ask you to pay their accountant any personal money for recruitment. Many of the MNCs that are doing recruitment never ever ask for money at all.




I have highlighted in red where they ask for money upfront for recruiting you as an employee in their concern as a "refundable" security deposit.

Believe me, it is only for their security that they are asking the money to be paid and that too to their accountant. Rest assured, when you go there or even phone them about this the company shall deny all this and tell you flat out that they are not indulging in these types of things.

Also, note that the email address and phone number of the recruiting officer are not provided. Even if they are provided, always check and verify the information in TIP # 1, the originating and reply-to email address.




In the above screenshot, the email of the recruiting officer or the reply-to email address should end with an "@amec.com" address, but for fooling you and making you think that this is a legitimate email address that has originated from the company, they have provided the full details. This is a big NO, NO and a big RED FLAG as to the reply-to address being of another company other than the original company's own email address.

Hope these Tips have helped you in gauging how to check your emails and see how these online fraudsters gone at great lengths to trick you into paying them money by various means.

Do not fall prey to these methods and save yourself from losing yours or your family's hard-earned money by just giving it to an unknown person or group who tell that they will get you employed or are calling you for interviews at a long off place.

Best of luck for a prospective and bright future!
