    Confession....I really want abs, but I really want Chinese food. My morning almost there abs will be gone after lunch :lol:

    Both personally and professionally, we make decisions everyday. Determining what to wear to work, which route to take to get there and even what foods we will eat are all decisions that have an impact on our lives. From a professional perspective, decision making is a key part of our jobs. Making the decision to hire or fire someone, whether or not to give someone an important project and deciding if we should launch a new product line, all impact our working lives and relationships in our organization. Decision making is defined as "the act of deciding between two or more alternative courses of action." (A Dictionary of Finance and Banking in Economics and Business, 1997). Being a good decision maker causes others to trust our abilities, whereas the opposite is true if we tend to make decisions hastily without carefully considering the ramifications of those decisions and their impacts across functional units.

    It is obvious that decision making is a key component in our lives, but decision making without critical thinking gives us only half of the picture. It is these two components combined that result in successes both personally and professionally.

    Combining the techniques of critical thinking and decision making results in situations that have been analyzed closely and potential outcomes clearly considered and defined prior to taking any action. In an article written by Greg Kitzmiller (2003), he states that "It seems most business people are busy taking action, meeting with people, interacting and making decisions. Certainly, thinking is one of the most important actions we take and is at the core of strategic planning."

    Based on Kitzmiller's comments, I believe that critical thinking and decision making must go hand in hand in order to be successful. In order to develop a strategic plan, you must closely evaluate all aspects and in making decisions about your course of action, you develop a strategic plan for the future. From both a personal and professional level, these two combined techniques will put you in a better position to reach your goals and be successful. As restated by Ken Petress "Making quality decisions involves critical thinking; critical thinking has been defined as - involving the ability to explore a problem, question, or situation; integrate all the available information about it; arrive at a solution or hypothesis; and justify one's position".

    Critical thinking allows us to question our environment and the information presented to us. "One alternative is to accept passively what you encounter; doing so automatically results in your making someone else's opinion your own. A more active alternative consists of asking questions of yourself in an effort to reach a personal decision about the worth of what you have experienced."

    I confess I tried....I really really tried to read this through

    I confess that although 99.9% of my fitness journey is for me and my goals, the remaining .1% wants my husband to be kickstarted by my progress and get into shape himself. I know it doesn't necessarily work like that.

    Last week on my way to work, I stopped at McDonalds and got a McFlurry. It was so good that when I passed by the next McDonalds, I purchased ANOTHER McFlurry. *hangs head in shame*

    Confession -- I am also weirdly obsessed with taking sexy pictures of myself right now. I say they're for progress, but also I think I'm freaking hot right now, even though I have a ways to go.

    Sharing is Caring

    I confess that even tho I'm a grown adult it makes me cry and feel jealous that my dad seems to have more time for his new gfs little kids than he does me

    Once again more time for someone else's kids

    It literally makes me feel like I'm nothing at all it makes me hate those kids

    For taking my daddy away from me

    My inner child is screaming

    Maybe your dad thinks they need more attention because they are little kids and you are an adult. Little kids need someone to help them navigate life more than an adult. They have more physical needs that they can't fulfill and more psychological needs as well.

    Just a thought.

    They are not his kids therefore they are not important

    my dad was off taking care of some other woman's kids tho even when I was a kid

    I confess that sometimes I just want to sell everything and move to an island and just live on the beach. All I need is a beach chair and an endless supply of rum. Actually the chair is optional.
