More on this topic

Ultimately all decisions, choices, responses, ... are value judgements. These judgements are about the quality (of life) and in most instances the life under consideration is our own. 
Most great teachers have pointed out the close association between the quality of our own lives and the extent to which we contribute to the quality of the lives of others.
As teachers it is our role to our students add quality to their lives through their learning.
We are not always conscious of the basis of each choice or response that we, or others, make. Glasser's Control Theory provides an explanation that challenges Pavlov's stimulus-response theory.
We judge the quality (of things, experiences, our life...) by how well they match the contents of our own 'personal quality world'.

Learning that contributes to our confidence that we can achieve our personal 'quality world' will be experienced as 'delightful'.
