For those of you who do not already know that I work in the Insurance Industry, well I guess you do now. I have tried for some time to avoid rambling about insurance topics, however, I knew it was inevitable.
Besides the overwhelming amount of work I must attend to daily, I am also faced with an immense amount of decision making. Now, one might think that making all the decisions is grand. On the other hand, years and years of decision making eventually puts you in this place where you no longer have the desire to make the repetitive decisions like, what you want for dinner or what do you want to listen to on the radio. This place also helps you not second guess yourself on things such as, what should I wear today or what should I watch on TV tonight.
This of course is a funny subject in our office at the moment, because there are those types of decisions where I do need to sit on them for a day or so. Sometimes I do have to weigh my options. In fact, Monday morning is a prime day for my assistant to remind me of how many decisions I have to make on her desk… let alone the thought of all the ones I have yet to make on my own desk.
So it didn’t come as much of a surprise when today for lunch we all agreed to order pizza. And of course everyone was so concerned with what Ms. Decision Maker wanted as a topping for the pizza.
I am at the point where I list the things I do not want rather than list the things I do want in these types of situations. For example, I said I didn’t care for black olives, anchovies or sausage as pizza toppings. This gave the others here in our office the gift of making the decision of what kind of pizza we were having.
As silly as this sounds, it’s a truth about me. I’d much rather have that person in my life who makes suggestions or decisions because I will more than likely agree or at least compromise. And trust me I will not hold back in voicing my decisions when they do come up, as you know they will.
Tonight I have class, and I don’t know if I feel glad or relieved that I don’t have to make the decision of what’s for dinner tonight. Although, tomorrow’s decisions and the day after’s are just around the corner. *Sigh*
