Life comes with built-in decision making abilities. Decisions -- a means to an end. If you take the ring, you're getting married soon. If you get an education degree, watch out students! If you stop taking birth control, chances are you'll get pregnant and maybe have not one baby but twins! Compounding the decision, you have to "decide" you're ready for the results of your decisions. Knowing the outcome of all decisions should be as simple as peeing on a stick.
We're usually just glad we have money to stretch across all the bills. The thermostat adjusts. You deserve a little time off! Go ahead and take it. The last category of everyday decisions seem relatively simple but nothing to sneeze at. Some of these leave us pondering for days and require a three to four outfit switcharooney. Which shoes do I wear with this outfit? What do I want for lunch? I really should call my mom today, can I make time?
I face a decision today about my writing. Where do I take it from here? Sitting at my kitchen table with keyboard in hand, I looked out the window and saw trees. Wouldn't it be cool if decision trees were real instead of a flow chart? We could walk into our yard and pick an answer off a limb! I want a cool looking decision tree like the one below. Why? Because this tree looks experienced, a real chance-taker!
