April 21, 2012
I have never made a robust decision before,
through all my life, whenever I reach crossroad, I always leave it up to destiny.
If I had known about decision-making tools, my life would have been different.
I would make sure that every step I take is firm and that no matter what happens I would not regret.
I would have been more prepared than this, and I would have thought of my choice and its consequences more carefully and critically.
Decision-making tools make us think logically, anyhow, we are all capable of thinking rationally but we are only human and sometimes subjected to psychological traps,.....instead of using our gut feeling, the tools help us turn to a scientific way when dealing with decisions.
But if I were using decision-making tool for my education choice, I would have been somewhere else, and thus, I would not be introduced with decision-making tools in the first place.
hahaha confusing,..just like time machine paradox.
A certain information technology project was called off after the company injected close to a hundred million dollars and wasted over 4 years of their resources.
The main reason behind the cancellation was that they couldn't withstand the constant changes of Italian regulations on running energy business and could no longer forecast the upcoming ones;
one change in Italian law can results in a major computer system enhancement which is also, costly.
Thus, it's better for the company to cut a finite lost, in order to not to spend who knows how much more. (I'm talking about a multi-billion dollar company in which a hundred millions could have been only what they spend on an annual cost of stationaries.)
I guess this is where the unpredictable factor became too unpredictable which collapsed all the good plans generated by RDM tools.
Anyway, congratulations to the company,....at least they did not fall into decision trap,....hahaha SUNK COST
It is almost no surprise why I felt stress when started reading about AM and KM, it's like what they say "old habit dies hard".
Right, this morning Paul mentioned that a probable reason we feel overwhelmed by KBAM is because we get used to education system that focuses on details, theories, pure knowledge. We do not know how to think real, and we do not have a good grasp of concept.
I'm quite disappointed in myself, because this is probably the last 'real' MBE module, the one I signed up for because I believe it would introduce me to many soft skills that will stay with me, that will be applicable to anything I want to do in the future.
So how come I'm still the same person as I was 7 months ago?
Do I need a longer time to get used to it?
Why am I realising this only in my head?
Is it because everything seems to be so philosophical?
Do I undermine myself?
Is it because I have not been focusing this whole time?
