Thought Of The Week

Theme: Who takes the blame?

 

Quote:

“Too often in life, something happens and we blame other people for us not being happy or satisfied or fulfilled. So the point is, we all have choices, and we make the choice to accept people or situations or to not accept situations.”

Tom Brady

 

Explanation/Question/Challenge:

In the computer game, The Sims, the players oversee a world they have created. You can manage families and their lives, you are the one that makes all the choices. In life, we make our own choices, they may be influenced by others but they still the decisions we have made.

  • If you were to create a world of your own, what rules would you put in place for people?
  • If you make a mistake, do you try and blame other people?
  • In groups discuss who influences the decisions you make? Are they good influences?
