Lesson Excerpt:

To understand the roles of choices, we need to start by examining a typical day.
The alarm clock goes off and what happens? We make a choice. We can choose
to get up, hit the snooze button and sleep a little longer, or turn off the alarm
and sleep later. Once we get up, we choose what to wear, what to eat, where
to go, who to see, and when to go back to bed.
