Aim of the Decision Making activity
- To show how to analyse a decision by weighing up the pros and cons.
I couldn't think of something careers-related for this exercise, so in the end I decided to do the exercise on something else: Whether or not to go home over the Easter break. For those who don't know, for me, home is quite a long way away. It's expensive to fly there and back and I don't know whether it would be worth spending all that money to go home only for a few weeks. But it would still be nice to go as it's not fun being far away from home and family for most of the year.
There are more reasons to stay on campus over Easter Break. But the reasons to go home over Easter Break, though fewer in number, have heavier weighting. I'll probably discuss it with my family over Christmas before coming to a decision. But this exercise was very useful because it made me think clearly about the pro's and con's of going home for Easter Break.
