sacrifices~~

this was our lunchtime discussion topic… haha

“how much are you willing to sacrifice for your own happiness? as long as what you feel that what you had gained is worth more than what you had chose to let go…”

sometimes life just throw you with the hardest decisions…
what is right? what is wrong? who can decide?

no choice will ever have a single common consensus, that is as long as what you feel is correct. cos no one can ever rely entirely on someone other than you yourself.

    why discuss this kinda topic over lunch?sometimes, how much things are worth is hard to define too.But I once learn in consumer behaviour that it is human’s nature to twist things round. As in, once a choice is made, no matter how bad the consequences are, Man will still make the best out of it. That’s human i guess~=P

    that’s cognitive dissonance rite? hahaha i learnt that too. we can’t make decisions in life base on econs theory. it doesnt mean that as long as mr=mc, u’ll maximise profits. it doesnt mean u sacrifice this amt n u’ll get tat amt in return. but at least the u make the best decision at the pt of time. whatever happens next, tell urself that the decision u made then is already a sunk cost. hahahaha!

    Lol~ This post machiam like some chatboard. Don’t really agree about the sunk cost thingy. haha~ While decisions made are like sunk cost”, still have to look at overall picture and call it quits when neccessary. But the auditor probably knows best. =) Shit… I’m ranting again..
