#71 - Decision






The Anatomy of a Decision
by Doctor Lambed Kroner;
anesthetist and philosophizing physicist

1. Do I have enough information already or do I need to do additional research?

2. Go to the electronic bookcase, ie; the internet...gather information; facts, opinion, previous outcomes.

3. Mix with ideas, facts, myth, or in between in the human mixing bowl---- ze brain/skull.

4. Weigh possible outcomes against desired outcome, ie; evaluate the odds.

5. Act!

Rel, you make it all sound so simple! A true scientific method at work :) If only it were that easy for me!

See? That's why it's just easier to have things happen to you, than to actually decide..Sure, it screws you up in the long run though.

Oh, no, that decision-making process makes me tired just reading it! What about the good old 'eeny meeny miney mo'? he he

You make a wonderful Simpson's character by the way!

That's a recipe for success if I do say so myself!You should patent this or copyright it or whatever they do with very clever things like this...
Hee hee- and you're very muscular there, rel- and look at those eyebrows! Wow!

I definitely have to do more research! What would I do if I didn't?

Rel, that just sounds like too much hard work...probably why I hate making decisions at times.

I think I'll give a miss today and not worry about making a conscious decision...just go with the flow instead!

Oh I like your advice, but Jone's made me laugh (what with me being a teacher and having a librarian as a friend!) She speaks wise words there.

Such a wonderfully logical post...thank goodness for the internet and all the info it can bring right to your fingertips! I do appreciate that very much. :~)

But the best decisions I've made have been the ones I find myself acting on before I've thought too much about them. I like to bypass the nutty professor guy.

I wish I was much more logical! I never was good in science. ;) HUGS

Enjoy your week!

I'm a pretty logical thinker most of the time, so certainly agree with your decision making process ... in principle. Gut instinct often overrules logic in the end, though, and has never led me astray yet. :)

I've seen lots of these Simpson thingies around lately, but have to say that yours is probably the most spot on yet. I'd know you anywhere! Ooh, and pardon me while I have a bit of a "moment" over those muscular shoulders. Hubba!! :D

Absolutely brilliant! If the idiots who make the bad decisions would follow your lead how harmonious life would be! Thank YOU!

And what was the outcome? Have you made a decision yet or are you still in the hunting and gathering stage?

Oh FINE! NOW you tell me!

Here I've been doing it wrong all these years.
Flipping the coin and doing the eeny meeny miney mo thing.

Well that certainly explains a LOT.

SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH.

Ok, back to the drawing board.

You make it sound so simple! None of this shall I/shan't I stuff:) Hope Jacob had a great birthday - I've been in computer no man's land recently so couldn't comment or do anything else that involved writing.
