Wise Choice Process (Take notes)

On the SAME sheet of paper as your notes, apply the Wise Choice Process
In this activity, you will apply the Wise Choice Process to improve a difficult situation in your life. Think about a current problem, one that you're comfortable sharing. As a result of this problem, you may be angry, sad, frustrated, depressed, overwhelmed, or afraid. Perhaps this situation has to do with a grade you received, a teacher's comment, or a classmate's action. Maybe the problem relates to a job, a relationship, or money. The Wise Choice Process can help you make an empowering choice in any part of your life. 

1. Write the six questions of the Wise Choice Process and answer each one as it relates to your situation. 
    1. What's my present situation? (Describe the problem objectively and completely.)
                3-5 Sentences
    2. How would I like my situation to be? (What is your ideal future outcome?)
                3-5 Sentences
    3. What are my possible choices? (Create a long list of specific choices that might create your                                    preferred outcome.)
                At least 5 possible choices
    4. What's the likely outcome of each possible choice? (If you can't predict the likely outcome of 
        an option, stop and gather more information.)
                1-2 sentences for each choice
    5. Which choice(s) will I commit to doing? (Pick from your list of choices in Step 3)
                3-5 Sentences
    6. When and how will I evaluate my plan? (Identify the specific date and criteria by which you will             determine the success of your plan.)
                3-5 Sentences
2. Write what you learned or relearned by doing the Wise Choice Process.
