What is the result you are after? Why do you want to achieve it? You must be clear about your outcome(s) and its (their) order of importance to you. Remember, reasons come first, answers come second.
Write down all of your options, including those that initially may sound far-fetched. Remember this principle:
One option is no choice.
Two options are a dilemma.
Three options are a choice. Write down ALL options whether you like them or not.
What are the upsides and downsides of each option? What do you gain by each option and what would it cost you?
Review each of their upsides and downsides (consequences). Ask yourself:
After completing this stage, you will be able to eliminate some options from your list.
Review the downside consequences for each of your remaining options. Then, brainstorm alternative ways to eliminate or reduce those downsides.
Based on the most probable consequences, select the option that provides the greatest certainty that you will meet your desired outcomes and needs.
Remember, it’s better to make a decision and monitor to see if you need to shift your approach than to remain paralyzed in indecision.
