Topic: do you agree or disagree with the following statement that the decisions that people make quickly always are wrong?
People always have to make a lot of decisions in the daily life. Although some people think that we are wrong when we hurry to make decisions, I strongly believe that the decision that we make quickly are not always wrong. on the contrary, these decisions are usually right in a lot of cases, such as familiar or hazardous situations and getting chances.
To begin with, it is undeniable that we should spend a lot of time to consider before to make decisions. Nevertheless, in many situations that we are very familiar with them, we can make decisions without spending time to think about them carefully. For example, a friend invites you to go to his birthday party at Saturday night, and you may agree with his invitation immediately because you know him and make sure that the party will be fun.
In addition, we can make decisions quickly when we need to get a chance. There is no doubt that some chances appear and disappear in our lives very rapidly so that we have to decide in the very short time in order to catch them. Nowadays, the development of stock market is very heated; therefore, the price of stocks go up and down rapidly in every second. If investors hesitate or take to much time to make decisions about buy or sale shares, they may lose their profits or all their money. Consequently, we should make quickly some decisions that base on our experience and instinct in order to get our opportunities, because they vanish so fast.
Finally, when we are in dangerous situations, to make decision quickly can help us to save our lives. What happen if the doctor spend to much time for thinking how to give emergency aid for a patient? He may lose his life if the doctor do not make decision immediately. In another case, when we are in the fire, we must find the ways to escape from it without considering about these way, because if we think late, we have no chance to do it again.
In brief, each decisions can affect to our lives, so we should make all decisions carefully. However, we cannot refuse to make some decisions without considering, and I totally agree that these decisions usually are right.
