Sometimes I feel like the smallest decisions can be the hardest ones to make. I think I allow myself to make something seem like a bigger deal than it really is. I try to ground myself in gathering more information, such as the true pros and cons of a decision, but that doesn’t always help.
What am I fighting with today? Whether or not to drop my marketing class. With it, I max out the number of credits I can take this semester, which is a good thing. However, the class is painful. I can’t determine if it is the content or the professor or the structure of the class, but either way the idea of not having to take it excites me. The draw backs though are that I’ve already spent $85 on the case materials, and those aren’t refundable. Additionally, I’ve already gone to 3+ classes. But, because I’m in business school I need to accept those as sunk costs.
So, going forward will I get more benefit out of dropping or staying in the class? I’m pretty sure I get more benefit dropping it and giving myself the opportunity to take a class that is more interesting to me. Yet for some reason it still feels like a failure to drop it. I have no idea why I am giving this much weight to such an issue.
