Using the five steps from Ch. 5 of Thinking Critically, create a plan for solving a problem you are currently facing. For the last step, identify how you will determine the effectiveness of your chosen solution.
Step 1: What is the problem?
Working too much.
Step 2: What are the alternatives?
Quit. Work less hours. Find Another Job.
Step 3: What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of each alternative?
Quit- No income coming, I can rest to find another job
Work less hours- Less money but happier because I will have time to do the things I want to do.
Find Another Job- the disadvantage is trying to find one that is better and makes me happy.
Step 4: What is the solution?
Work less hours
Step 5: How well is the solution working?
We will see.
Write a 100- to 150- word reflection about this process. How did this process help you devise a solution? How can you use this process with future problems? Will this work for all problems you face? Why or why not?
It will help me make decisions before in the future because it forces you to come up with other solutions then just one. I can use this in a lot of my decisions in the future and it will help face problems that I may have in the future. It will not help in all my problems that I face but I would say that it will help will 90 percent of my decisions.
