A Technical Approach to Decision Making
This morning as I signed on line, a number of replies had come in with regards to my message. Most people suggested doing all three. This of course got me nowhere in my decision making process. I’m sure it’s possible, but I can’t begin to imaging buying a house, going to graduate school, and starting a business all at the same time.
One reply though came out of the blue from
Charlene Kingston (@Kinchie) which suggested a simple process to help me make up my mind: the decision matrix.
I had heard of something very similar a few years ago from a family friend who uses it at the bank he works at, but I have not had the opportunity to try it out yet. After reading over Charlene’s post, I’m going to have to give it a shot. It sounds like something right up my way considering it is a very methodical way to help guide you towards making a decision. Check out Charlene’s post over at her blog, From the Crow’s Nest. This is another win in my book for crowdsourcing. Thanks for the advise Charlene!
