Oh Susannah Conway, your prompt is very challenging!
What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?
I had to write on this prompt for a while to get to something truthful.
750Words.com is good for this sort of thing – the rambling before getting anywhere.
I can’t recall any big wise decision I made this year, but I do see a pattern is some small decisions that might indicate my “ability to apply knowledge or experience or understanding or common sense and insight.”
Another definition: “knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action.”
- choosing not to lend money to…ah, I won’t get into details here
- telling people “actually, I do mind if you smoke in here”
- being clear about how much money I need to do a certain job
I’ve been having more and more of these moments. Are they wise moments?
If the definition is “knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action,” then yes, I made a few wise decisions.
I see all these decisions as little moments when I decided to say what was good for me when normally, I would just keep quiet. And this is something that I only started doing this year.
