Sample Answer of Describe a difficult decision that you once made

In our life, there were several occasions that we had to take immediate decisions without wasting time. That may be because of any external pressure or the importance of a particular matter. Today I would like to talk about a decision I had taken years before which was very difficult for me.

After completing my post-graduation, I was eager to join in employment. For this, I often attended various interviews. In between these interviews, I got placed with a construction company, and basically, they are from the Sultanate of Oman. Before processing my employment, there were several procedures to complete. In between this, my parents fixed my marriage immediately. Due to some administrational procedures, my departure date fluctuates another.

My marriage was fixed for May 24th, 2011. The very previous day of my marriage, I got an email from my organization that I needed to join and take charges within one without fail. I felt totally blank at that time. I immediately discussed this matter with both family members and my fiancé. All of them encouraged me to immediately join, including my fiancé. I am not able to take a single step without their support. Finally, I have taken the decision to join on June 1st.

Still, it was one of the most drastic decisions I have ever made. As per the planned date, I flew to the Sultanate of Oman. Still, I felt it was one of the outstanding decisions I ever made. I strongly believe nobody can’t take such decisions in their life. Because everyone had so many dreams about their marriage and followed days, even I also had. But fortunately or unfortunately, it may differentiate.

Question 1:- What decisions do people generally make in their daily life?

Answer:- In daily life, people can take plenty of decisions. Once they take any decisions, they review them again. It’s mostly related to their day-to-day life, diet, their job, monthly budget, education of their children, their medication, and many more. These decisions may help individuals for better planning and understandings.

Question 2:- Which is easier, making a decision by oneself or making a decision after a group discussion?

Answer:- In my opinion, decisions that are more fruitful are after group discussions compared to individual decisions. Because, when we are discussing a serious matter in front of a group we can easily solve it with numerous effective ways. Group discussions help for better brainstorming and help to tackle the situation very effortlessly. On the other hand, single planning always had a barrier of individual possibilities, and it has only limited resources and ideas.

Question 3:- Why are many young people unwilling to listen to their parent’s advice?

Answer:- Some of them treated as adults ideas were outdated, and they were not able to solve the latest issues. Rather than this, youngsters themselves are treated as intelligent. They also believe that they can easily solve issues without any external support.

Question 4:- Why do middle-aged people tend to second guess their decision?

Answer:- Of Course. In their previous experiences, they have learned valued lessons. Moreover, it is a stage of being mature in their life. So they reviewed their decisions twice.
