  参考范文

  People encounter different occasions when they are required to make life-changing decisions. Some people tend to rush to their decisions while others spend time weighing advantages and disadvantages. In my opinion, taking time to consider thoroughly before settling on a decision is a good quality of a person because, in this way, one benefits from his decisions.

  First, people progress faster in their career by taking time to make job-related decisions. This is because they have enough time to consider if the job offers enough opportunities for progression. When I first graduated from university, I had two job offers: one was from a small startup providing me with competitive salaries while the other was from a medium-sized company offering lower salaries and comprehensive on-job trainings. Most of my friends talked me into taking the job with decent salaries. However, I took a week to do research before deciding to take the job with on-job trainings. Since I was new to the industry, I thought it was better for me to receive professional training provided by the company. It turned out that, with the training, I understood more about the industry I was in and successfully traded the products to our customers overseas. I did not have to worry about my salaries neither because I got a decent bonus from my sales.

  Second, people gain more life experience by taking time to make life-changing decisions. My decision of quitting my job and travelling around to see more of the world have enriched my life. I had been considering for about a year before I told my parents that I wanted to take a gap year travelling abroad to experience different life styles. My parents did not see eye to eye to me since they thought it was just a spur-of-the-moment decision. However, I proved to them that I had made up my mind by showing them all my travelling plans and my flight tickets booked in advance. They were finally convinced that I was not taking a year away just to escape from my routine. Thanks to my thorough planning before making a decision, I enjoyed my gap year travelling to six different countries, spending time with the locals and experiencing different cultures.

  Third, people maintain better interpersonal relationships by taking time to make important decisions. This is because, after taking time to think, people tend not to make decisions that destroy relationships. For example, I had a fierce fight with my friend before because he misunderstood my words. I was so angry at the time and decided not to talk to him anymore. When I calmed down, however, I realized how stupid I would have been if I had lost a friend because of misunderstanding. Therefore, I explained the whole incident to him and we were reconciled. I was happy that I did not make hasty decisions so that we are still good friends now.

  In conclusion, taking enough time to make important decisions is a good quality that brings benefits, including fast job progressions, more life experience and better interpersonal relationships.
