I wanted to go in IT industry, that think was for sure. But I wanted to go towards development side but was unable to crack the development interviews. So my toughest decision was to choose some alternative by which I can enter into IT industry so I entered IT platform via Software Tester position and after a while, I started enjoying Testing than Development. Sometimes, in life, we have to take certain decisions just to keep up the Rising moment going.

Asfarkhan Patel said: (Dec 25, 2015)  
Last year I was offered the opportunity to move up in PMO office within my company.

The promotion would have included a pay raise and a more prestigious title "Assistant PMO" in PMO department. However, I was at a critical juncture with several responsibilities and was concerned that moving at that time might jeopardize their progress and create negative consequences for employees I supervised.

I thanked my superiors for the opportunity and discussed my concerns, and we came to an agreement that it was best for the company that I remain in my current role for the time being, with the possibility of accepting the promotion at a later date.

As long as I remember its just nothing. Because whatever decision I took its all about my happiness and I learned many things from that, like, later on you will be happy to know that whatever is the situation its just because you have made it, no one is responsible for it. So you will not blame anyone for your own life.

Making difficult decisions is very easy. Rather than talking about difficult decisions to make, it is important to talk about sensible decisions to make. I believe that it is easier to make difficult decisions than sensible decisions.

I think the toughest decision of my life was to choose chemical engineering in this college. I was in a dilemma at that time between mechanical engineering in a top private college or chemical engineering here. Also for chemical engineering I had to leave my hometown and my parents, I think that was the toughest part.

I don't think decision making can be categorized as tough or easy. It is we who decide whether to make it easy or tough. If we are ready to face any situation with determinism, then every decision making becomes too light. But if we remain lazy, even very small decision making seems tougher.

Usha said: (May 5, 2015)  
There is certainly no decision like it's wrong or right. Every decision is taken based on certain situations or prospects. If it was our decision and we made it wrong, there is no point dwelling on it. We need to accept and either change the situation or our reaction to the situation, because we would not make the decision if we knew where it would lead to.

If it is someone else decision thrust on us, then we need to analyse if we can move on with it, if we can't, we need changes. I did face such a situation when I had to choose a career. But, since it's me who made it, I would rather move on and focus on what is positive and possible.
