A typical day
Let us think for a moment about all the little decisions we make in a typical day:
- List all of the decisions you make in a typical day
- Whether or not to wash my hair
- Whether or not to …
■ which decisions are automatic (an instinctive response)?
- The decisions that were automatic were e.g., choosing to put on black socks
■ how many of these decisions require some thought?
- The decisions that required some thought were e.g., deciding which books to bring to school
■ how many involve serious concerns with potentially serious consequences?
- Some of my decisions could have had serious consequences if I had made the wrong choice e.g., choosing to bring the wrong books to school.
■ how do you approach making these latter decisions (serious ones)?
- The approach (method, system, routine) I take is to e.g., write little notes to myself for the things I know I will probably struggle with.
■ Are you surprised by how many decisions you actually make
during the course of a day?
- I am/ am not surprised by how many decisions I actually make during the course of a day.
THINK – What type of help is available to you when you are making serious life choices (e.g. options for GCSE choices, suitable schools / colleges / universities, suitable apprenticeships etc.) (This may involve visiting the Connexions Resource centre, careers library, school library, speaking to a personal adviser etc. as appropriate.)
