These concept all impact the decision making process. (DIETRICH, 2010).The decisions to go to school for me was difficult .I had to overlook all the positives and negatives before I made my decision. First I thought about how going to school could better my future. How it could impact my relationship with my family and how going to school could affect my time. Even though I wanted to go to school my past experiences in high school effected my decision to go sooner. I believed that school would better my chances of getting a better job. I had to think about the decision, and then analyze all possibilities and the things that could affect me then finally I came to the conclusion to attend school.
