“Life is the sum of all your choices.” said Albert Camus. Choices have consequences that will always affect your life and making choices is just a part of human nature. There is one book that showcases choices perfectly and how they affect the main character’s life. This book is called Tangerine, and it shows how choices and events can change people or places by showing us choices that affected its main character, Paul Fisher. This essay will show you just how much people’s choices and events affected his life, and will show you just how much the choices you make will affect your life.
Choices, the story writen by Susan Kerslake is about how the choices that we make everyday affect who we are and how our life can change by making the wrong decission. But is it always a bad decission? is it always our fault?
In every book, movie, television show and in the real world, people are faced with difficult decisions that alter the course of their lives. For example “The
Decisions are what direct a average person's life. Some decisions are easy some are hard. But that’s the way of life and how it works.
There are many things I have done that have helped me make this decision. Working as a Surgical Technologist at NYU, as a Medical Assistant for an Internal Medicine Practice and as a front desk Receptionist my medical terminology skills have sharpened as well as the anatomy
My connections look at how certain choices can affect your life forever. The texts that I used to convey this link were The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, Slumdog Millionaire directed by Danny Boyle, The Shawshank Redemption directed by Frank Darabont and a poem by Robert Frost called The Road Not Taken. Throughout the texts used we learn that you cannot always see the outcome of a particular choice unless you choose to go down that path. An important decision is made by the main character(s) in each text and they suggest that not all choices are easy to make and can have positive and negative consequences.
The choices that we make today will impact our tomorrow. Whether we realize it or not, every single time we do something, we are making a choice. Many of these choices are subliminal, such as the direction we walk or the way we carry ourselves, but some choices impact the way people look at us. More importantly, some choices impact how successful we are in various things. I chose to write about choices because choices are single handedly the most important thing in the world. Everything we do on a daily basis is a choice, and choices are important to me as a person because they are something I am trying to get better at. The choices made in preparation for assorted events are undoubtedly the most important choices that can be made in our
Sometimes the hardest decisions are the most important, and are the ones that shape and sculpt your journey through life. Whenever I am faced with a dilemma, like whether to start a new episode of The Office on Netflix or to proofread my global history essay, I remember to take a step back to better analyze the situation which, at times can change my perspective.
Why are decisions difficult to make? Are decisions the two paths that will lead us down to our future? Are they like an answer choice on a test, that we feel the need to stress about whether we choose the right or wrong decision? Perhaps people should realize that making decisions can lead us to embark on new life changing journeys.We need to learn that we should not fear making decisions because whatever one we choose, can lead into something extraordinary.Even though we sometimes cannot better the decisions we made, but we can rather better ourselves.In Maya Angelou’s poem, “Caged Bird”, We see the two different people and learn how they deal with tough decision making.” Langston Hughes gives a perfect example in the poem “Mother to Son.” Robert Frost explains how the decisions we make should come from our minds and not someone elses.To everyone who makes the decisions that comes from their heart, will have a better outcome in the end if only they try harder.
There are an infinite number of benefits from a career in the medical field, but the defining point in my decision is the impact that I would potentially have in other people’s life. I want to be the person that continues one’s fight when they feel like they can no longer fight. The person who sees people at some of their worst times and still gives them hope for the future, no matter what the situation may be. Additionally, it has always been a dream of mine to grow up and truly enjoy waking up each morning to go do what I love. I see a medical career being exactly what would transform this dream of mine into a reality if I were one day blessed enough to have a career in
Most of these decisions have to be made consciously. You can’t just decide spontaneously what to wear, you have to make sure the outfit matches. Although some can be made unconsciously such as talking to people. When someone says hi to you, you don’t think about it you just respond saying hi. Throughout the day we all make decisions using our unconscious and conscious. In some situations there are times when you can’t make a spontaneous decision, or it may lead you in the wrong direction such as it lead the policemen in the Bronx the wrong way. Recently I was faced with a tough decision that had to be made consciously otherwise I most likely would have made the wrong choice. I was trying to decide whether I should continue playing field hockey or if I should switch to Cross Country. I have been playing field hockey since I was in fourth grade so I didn’t want to just quit with no thought put into it. On the other hand if I was to quit and run cross country, I would become a stronger runner which would help me with track. I thought of the pros and cons of each and was conflicted. I loved field hockey but I also love track and wanted to become stronger. I eventually chose Cross Country. This was not an easy choice and if I had made it spontaneously, I would have chose not to quit field hockey which would have been the wrong choice. My life experiences have also lead me to disagree with Gladwell’s main message.
After high school I plan to attend college and major in biology or environmental science. I’m undecided on whether I want to go on to become a doctor or a physician assistant. However, I intend to use my career as either a doctor or a physician assistant to serve underdeveloped areas both nationally and internationally. I’d also like to get involved with organizations that involve promoting health and education.
I have always wanted to enter the medical field but I wasn’t for sure on what I wanted to go in for. I was stuck between choosing medical assisting and medical billing and coding. I choose medical billing and coding because there are so many job opportunities you can receive while working in this field. I am very excited about learning the different codes that are used in the medical field. After I graduate and pass the certification exam I see myself working in a hospital setting or
With that being said, if I had to narrow my specialty choices to five, they would include family medicine, pediatrics, and internal medicine based on my experiences thus far. The idea of providing care for the newborn to the geriatric patient provides diversity that excites me. Serving as coordinator of a patient’s care and well-being stirs the relational being inside me. Senior year of college is often a time where people evaluate their lives and seek to do things of significance. All of the extracurricular activities and leadership positions that I am pouring my time into reflect my high view of relationships. From what I have experienced in the healthcare setting, primary care physicians tend to hold the same value. Primary care physicians I shadowed would look at the chart of a patient and always have a story to tell. I both admire this and strive to live my life in accordance with this
Making decisions is no easy feat, especially when it comes to choices that have the ability to change the direction of one's life. Decisions like choosing what college to go to and what career path to head down are often encouraged to be deliberated as far as years in advance, solidifying the common belief that the more educated the decision, the better it is. English Canadian author Malcolm Gladwell challenges this notion by arguing that snap decisions made by the adaptive unconsciousness have the ability to be controlled and utilized to to become equally as powerful as conscious choices can be. Gladwell executes this message through a well written introduction split up into three parts; the first providing an extended example, the second
