Decisions! They govern our world, our actions and even our thoughts! Ultimately, they define who we are. How many decisions do we make in a day, in an hour or in a second?
In 2008, at De Montford University, we explored this topic in depth through a series of talks, such as “The Butterfly Effect”, “The Ripple Effect” and “The Internal Effect” – better known as ‘24/7’. As students, we are faced with more choices, challenges and decisions than ever before. University life provides the perfect blend of opportunities and experiences from which we are able to shape our future. Students are faced with a multitude of seemingly trivial decisions on a daily basis, such as deciding what to eat, what to wear and whether to go out or study. In addition, every student at some point is faced with more complicated moral and ethical dilemmas.
It expanded the students’ mind and made them aware that every moment counts when making decisions.
24/7 looked into what guides these decisions we make on a daily basis, exploring whether it is our body, our logic, our environment or something much deeper that helps us make a decision. The event consisted of interactive workshops, insightful speakers and imaginative displays. It expanded the students’ mind and made them aware that every moment counts when making decisions.
