April Challenge for the 13th: "How do you make Decisions?"

Let's see here:

The easiest way is with a coin toss.  Consulting the Gods is not advised.  They never agree on anything.  Just ask Arjuna, and a few other victims of both scripture and myth.

There is also the "Three week study of pro's and con's" method, where you will probably get so bogged down in pluses and minuses that you end up doing a coin toss.

At this stage you probably should try calling and asking a friend what they would do about XYZ... They will give you a short course in, "Obfuscation and Hem-Haws", all the while trying mightily to not step on your feelings or your toes.  This will inevitably end in.... a coin toss.

The next thing to try is to haul two rocking chairs out of the house, position them to overlook the best part of your open space, and invite a Good friend over for cake and lemonade.  Now, you can just have a general chin wag and gently let drop that you've run into a roadblock and need a dispassionate opinion on the subject of XYZ.

OR.....Save yourself a lot of time and go with your gut.  Just you go ahead and do whatever comes into your little bony head immediately, and then if you should run into a crossroads due to dumbness or wild hairs, have coin toss.

 OR...  you can just walk back to square one and go the other direction.  If that ends in yet another fiasco, you can return to point A, and toss a coin.   Personally but this time I'd quit and take a nap.
