We like to believe that we make calculated, logical and rational decisions. In reality, they are full of all sorts of emotions.
Why do you buy the Mercedes over the Kia?
Why do you buy the electric car over the gas or the diesel car?
Why do you buy the $50 purse versus the $500 purse or the $5,000 purse?
Why do you live in a condo versus a house or vice versa?
Why did you start your business?
Why haven't you started your business?
Why do you meet in person versus over the phone?
Why did you watch the action movie over the love story?
Why did you put in the high end kitchen over the Ikea kitchen?
Why did you choose the steak over the salad?
There are plenty of arguments for each one of these decisions. Does that mean there is a right decision and a wrong decision?
If we're honest with ourselves, we will make our decisions and then rationalize them in our own minds.
Right or wrong is just a point of view.
But keep in mind that a point of view from somebody who has more experience than you may be worth considering.
