Which One Will You Choose??? Which One Will You Choose??? Presentation Transcript

  • Which onewill youchoose? Sompong Yusoontorn
  • The story given below is quiteinteresting and really gives us an insight into DECISION MAKING. Which one will you choose?
  • A group of children were playing near two railwaytracks, one still in use while the other disused.
  • Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.The train came, and you were just beside the track interchange. You could makethe train change its course to the disused track and save most of the kids.
  • However, that would also mean the lonechild playing by thedisused track would be sacrificed.
  • Or would you rather let thetrain go its way? Lets take apause to think what kind of decision we could make......
  • Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child. You might think the same way, I guess.
  • Exactly, I thought the sameway initially because to save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision mostpeople would make, morally and emotionally.
  • Moral # 1 : You must make the right decision.Have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disusedtrack had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?
  • Moral # 2 : The decision of the majority could be wrong.Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friendswho chose to play where the danger was.
  • Moral # 3 : All leaders must pay more attention to thedifferent advices from the minority.This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politicsand especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest ofthe majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted andknowledgeable the minority are.
  • Moral # 4 : Everyone is important in the team.The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined.And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.
  • Moral # 5 : The right decision will deliver the better result.Some One said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believedthat the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that trackwas still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the trains sirens.
  • Moral # 6 : Surprise decisions dont always make the rightpeople feel happy.If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he neverthought the train could come over to that track! Don’t surprise him, when hemakes the right decision.
  • Moral # 7 : Wrong decisions will result in the biggerproblems in the long run.Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe. If the train wasdiverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And inyour attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificinghundreds of people to save these few kids.
  • Moral # 8 : Everybody makes mistakes or wrong decisions.While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may notrealize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one. You should always be willingto change decision and welcome the right one because through change and challenge youcan grow. Don’t let your ego dictate your thoughts, your acts, your words, and your emotions.
  • Moral # 9 : Always make the right decision.Every one of us should be the leader of our own life. We should not let others take control and sitin the pilot seat of our life. We should not also be dependent on others to tell us what is right andwhat is wrong. "Remember that whats right isnt always popular...and whats popular isnt alwaysright." Everybody makes mistakes; thats why they put erasers on pencils.
  • Moral # 10 : Don’t follow the crowd.Leaders are the ones who take the road less travelled or even they are the ones who discoverthe paths untraveled. Once they discover the path, they become searchlights by highlightingthe path for others to follow. They are the ones who say no to following the crowd and becauseof that they become worthy of being followed by the crowd.
  • “The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The manwho walks alone is likely to find himself no one has ever been. He is a leader who has not followed the crowd but a leader who has created new roadmaps and been a searchlight for others to follow.” “Do You Make The Right Decision, Don’t You?” How many people are sacrificed, after you make a decision?
