Decision Making

We can find ourselves at a difficult crossroad while trying to decide what classes to take, what to major in, or which job to take. We've compiled a list of spiritual resources that might be able to address the subject that you are having a hard time with.


I feel like I don't have time to study my scriptures during the week because school keeps me so busy. Why should I try to read?
I'm not sure if I want to go to Medical School. Why should I continue my education?
 "Where is Wisdom" by Elder Russell M Nelson answers both of these questions quite nicely.



I'm torn between what I think I is the logical choice and with what I think I'm being prompted with. What should I do?  
"Decision Making The Lord's Way" by Steven C. Wheelwright addresses just that.


How can I make sure that I am studying effectively?

"Appoint among yourselves a teacher, and let not all be spokesmen at once; but let one speak at a time and let all listen unto his sayings, that when all have spoken that all may be edified of all, and that every man may have an equal privilege." D&C 88:122. 

Study groups are a proven way by the Lord and by scientists to improve how we learn. When we pool our resources together it benefits everyone. Each person in your study group has a different specialty and can remind you of important details that you may not have remembered on your own. Students who study together test significantly better than students who study on their own.

I'm feeling sluggish in school. I don't see the point in why I have to take some of these classes. Why should I stick with them?

Sometimes the answers lies in ourselves. Listen or read "Building Character" by President Worthen. It may help you see what you can do to change your perspective and help set higher goals for yourself. He starts talking at 11:40.
