I need to use a book for a school project and the school is not providing it.
step 1: define the need
step 2: list options for meeting the need
go to the library or buy the book so I can use it in the future
If I buy it I will be able to use it in the future if my teacher asks about it again. I also do not have to go back to the place and return it. Instead it will be mine and I can do whatever I want with it.
When I go to the library I am going to have to search for the book, check it out, and eventually return it. I might not spend money, but what if I need it later on and cannot return it on time.
step 3: compare the options you have identified
I decide to go buy the book because it is going to help me a lot.
step 4: make a decision
I found the book, now I am going to buy it.
step 5: take action based on your decision
step 6: reevaluate your choice.
Buying the book was pretty great. I enjoyed reading it and helped me complete my assignments my teachers created about it. I didn't have to go back to the library to give it back and get it again.
I can read it in the future and let people borrow it since it had a nice lesson.
