Thanks @mlucas for your feedback. This is really helpful.
Unless the decision to separate was recent, but your wording about circumstance makes it sound like no
So it means a decision which is way back might not be a good driver even though it still has a huge impact. Noted.
sounds like an action driver -- the school finds the letter (Action), forcing their decision
Ah, this makes sense, I need to look for what is forcing their decision (finding letter)
Does beating the classmate force any decisions? Like
Yes, the school tells boy he must attend a special training to avoid being thrown out from school
First Driver, sets up the need for the Story Goal .. Goal of "figuring out how to be a better family" (Conceptualizing),
Great, the Goal is Conceptualizing “find a place in the world / fit in with the rest of the world”
work best when you can see the OS Problem at play in the Driver
This make sense, but I am not sure with this:
(Setup) After the divorce a boy is forced to live with his mother in a prominent problem area.
He quickly learns to “look inside for inner strength” (Problem Self-aware) without “being sensitive to his peers” (Solution Aware)
(Driver) The boy beats his classmate (action) because he called is mother a bitch .. this action forces the school to make a decision what to do with him (after many similar Actions)
My argument is: You can find your place in life when you give up thinking so little of yourself
I am not sure with the Self-Aware part. Does Self-Aware explain his inner anger?
