You’ve done a lot of work to decide on an occupation. However, when you least expect them, problems can make it hard for you to reach your goal.
Possible situations may include:
• Your child getting sick
• Your car breaking down or the bus route changing
• You having money problems
Don’t let problems keep you from reaching your occupational goal. For each action in your plan, write down any possible problems. Then think about how you’re going to get around the problems. List possible solutions. For every problem that you list, there should be at least one solution.
Try to be as specific as you can. The more precisely you can describe the problem, the easier
it will be to find a solution. By planning your solutions in advance, you’ll find it much easier to solve problems if they do come up. Solving problems quickly will help you to keep working on your occupational goal.
