Decisions! Decisions! Decide!

By: Maddie Chilton


Have you ever been so torn between two choices that you just don’t know what to choose? I certainly have. I had this problem when I was trying to decide if I wanted to buy the IPod 4s or save my money in till the next version came out. To help me decide I followed the decision making process.


What resources I have to help me decide are me money (to pay for the item), knowledge (information I had about the two items), and transportation (a car to take me where I need to go). When I was deciding I needed to see if I had enough money. I had $310. The IPod 4s cost $200 and the next version would cost about $300. My knowledge helped me by telling me what I know. The IPod 4s was smaller, but I could get it sooner. The next version was bigger, but cost more. I needed transportation to take me to store’s I needed to find the item I wanted.

My Choices


My choices for this decision are to get the IPod 4s now and not have to pay as much or wait 3 months and pay more. The information I gathered about each item is the IPod 4s is smaller, cost less, and I wouldn’t have to wait as long. The next version would be bigger, cost more, and I would have to wait longer.


I have decided that I am going to get the IPod 4s. Why I am getting this is because I don’t want to wait 3 months for the next version. Also with the money I saved I can buy a few more cases to go with my iPod.

The Right Choice

I have had this IPod for 5 months now and I am glad I picked it. This decision has saved me time and money. I am happy I made this choice.
