Struggles in selecting the right course for college
Choosing a right career path can be tough. Especially, when the parents are involved. Parents want their children to have a better life in the future so they want their children to be educated. When they are successfully graduate from the college they can get a high paying job and earn much more than their parents. However, does everyone listen and follow their parents’ decisions about the career? What happen if kids didn’t want what their parents told them to do? Is there a compromise and or one side needs to give in? It was a tough decision for me too. There was a lot of pressure on me. I was hesitated and somehow worried when my parents were involved, but I knew what I want for my career.
My explanation somehow did not work well. I started struggling between my career and my father’s “career”. Before it was too late to decide my major, I gave a chance for myself and picked something related to my future career. Before I told my parents I had decided to be a IT, I did a little research on the job. It was good, but required lots experiences to get in a decent game company. But I did not stick with one job. I also heard of the main branches of IT, Computer Programmers, Analysts Computer and Information Systems Managers (IT managers) were good choices for me and I liked them too. And it’s false that those who pursue higher education and skills can get a higher economic reward. Everything is competitive now; the value of education does not count toward our future income earning. I realize that even if I graduated from the college there was higher chance I would not have a job or a job that I did not expect and paid very low. However, I do like what I do right now in my major class. I think if you did what you want and be happy with it, it doesn’t matter how low you get paid you still fulfill in your life.
Decision making is critical to mission success. Unfortunately, many struggle to select a course of action for various reasons. While decision making is important at any level of the organization, the transition from follower to leader can be particularly difficult to navigate, especially without a formal development process. That may be good for popularity or avoiding criticism, but it will come to a head when things go bad and we sit on the sideline watching the consequences play out. Inaction rarely produces desirable outcomes in this business. It is easy to become so concerned with making the ideal choice that we forget to make an appropriate one instead. Right or wrong, the best way to improve our decision-making ability is to start by just making one. From daily chores to scene size up, take advantage of any opportunity to set the course. Just like any other skill, the more we practice, the easier making decisions becomes.
