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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
