What kind of decisions do young people have to make?
They have to make a great deal of difficult decisions. Young people are generally in a state of constant transition, and as a result, they are required to continually make vast and life changing decisions, such as which career path to follow, whether to pursue higher education, and how best to focus their time and energy. Outside of the realm of study and employment, young people are no doubt also faced with difficult personal decisions, as they begin to learn more about themselves and others.
Who do you think has a harder time making decisions, children or adults?
Children without a doubt find it harder to make decisions. The choices they need to make may be less important but they lack the experience that adults possess when it comes to decision making and therefore have a much harder time. I think adults are more sure of themselves, self-aware and more confident that the decisions they make will be the right ones.
What are the advantages of taking time to make a decision?
Well, obviously the main advantage is that it ensures you don’t jump the gun and make an impulse decision that you will regret later. Personally I think if possible it’s a good idea to spend time turning over any big decision in your mind before commiting one way or the other. Often by taking a step back and analysing a situation, we are able to gain a new and deeper perspective. Of course, taking time can result in a kind of chronic inactionwhich is also problematic.
Choosing between money and freedom, what do you think most people from your country would choose?
I would guess that most people would choose money. I think this is actually a smart choice because money inherently leads to freedom in all kinds of ways. If you’re wealthy you consequently also have freedom financially and personally. You can travel and live wherever you want, choose to partake in work that you’re passionate about, and essentially spend your days in whatever way you like.
Ten years from now, do you think people will have easier or harder decisions to make?
To be honest, I think it’s impossible to generalise and make a realistic statement about all people, but i’ll take a stab at it. I would predict that people, both those in high-powered government positions and the poorest subsistence farmers will be faced with increasingly difficult decisions. In part this will be a response to the effects of climate change that continue to wreak havoc on the environment. All people will need to make tough decisions especially in developing countries.
