Hi, Kitos. Could you check this essay? Thank you beforehand
Every day we make decisions ranging from ordinary ones like a choice of clothes in the mornings or dishes at noons to important ones like purchase of real estate or president election. The question is whether we should make them alone or consult with other people. In my opinion it depends on a situation. If it comes to personal issues, we can cope without any advice, but if we consider issues of great importance that will influence others’ lives, we should make them in the company of the people, who will be exposed to their consequences, as well as experts of these fields.
First, the issues related to an individual may be solved alone. Of course, it would be better if a person asks advice of his close relatives, friends and teachers. He can listen to others’ opinions to make the right decision by considering different options, because the idea come to one’s mind may not come to another’s. However, in any case a final decision must be made by the person himself, since it is his life, and the decision related to him must conform to his interests, preferences and wishes. But unlike personal issues, sometimes we have to consider problems relating to others’ fates, where we should take into consideration that our decisions may have negative implications for others.
In such cases we must be very considerate and sensible. We should speak to the people being involved in the problem, ask their opinions and consider their suggestions. Certainly, it is not easy to make a decision choosing from a variety of solution options, but it may increase efficiency of the decision. In addition, the people involved in the decision making process will be satisfied with this decision, since they also participate in the process. It will also have effect on the execution of the decision, as they will be more adhered to its accomplishment.
Furthermore, nowadays you can encounter various experts, specialists and consultants almost in all fields, who have richer experience and deeper knowledge than you. You can resort to their aid in financial, juridical and other fields. It will allow you to raise effectiveness of your decision.
All in all, when you make decisions relating only to your life, you can ignore others’ opinions, but as to the decisions with the potential impact on others you should consult with them, and involve experts into the decision making process. As it is said in my country “one head is good, but two heads are better”.
