Needs and Strategies — 3 Comments

  1. Hey Rachel – I love following your comments, on this and other blogs like FLF and Bella’s space in PT.

    For “life choices”, I quite like the “weighted pros and cons list” (these are the good things about this choice, these are the “bad” ones, and this is how important each of them are – on whatever scale you choose). I tend to put “gut feel” in there too. It helps to have a reference point too, as to how a certain decision was arrived at – and any points I might want to talk through with those I’m close to before making a final choice…

    If it works for you too, great!

    • Oh, I love pro-con lists! I can’t remember who it was but someone pointed out that we usually don’t make rational decisions, so pro-con lists don’t really work. Even if that is true – and the pro-con list “just” reflects our gut feel – i think they’re a great way to clarify for us what the decision is really about.
