Peeling the Onion: My best Resolution Options for the New Year: using Option Solving?

Two weeks ago we came up with five options for producing the best New Year’s resolution. After sleeping on it, I decided to pursue option C: “Develop 4-5 resolution options and then sleep on them to produce one.” So, in accord with the option solving technique, I created a fresh question and considerations: ”What is my best New Year’s resolution to pursue, considering my ability to produce 4-5 interesting options, the general economic environment, family circumstances, my current career status, and my point in life?” There were other considerations, but I selected around 50% that were of the greatest importance…see this in our latest example.
With this set, I again produced two framing yin and yang “bookends;” to help my intuition dig out the best possible resolution options. These new ‘bookends’ turned out to be, “Not bother with a resolution at all” and “Have several resolutions and play it by ear.” You will find these in our Latest Example; plus why it would not be a good scenario to pursue these.
Once these bookends were in place, my intuition was now in its best frame of mind to come-up with at least five alternative, more plausible options. Of the five ultimate possibilities I came up with, which you can view in our latest example, I will share one here: “Make some clear breaks for downtime” – Option D.
Now my options were in place, I decided to sleep on all of them to create some emotional distancing. By tomorrow morning, the moment I wake up, my intuition will have done its incredible search through my mental database to make a choice based upon comparable experiences. Once that choice has been made, I will then focus on “Next Steps,” while the whole option solving exercise is still fresh. I can then proceed with my resolution.
If you have an example of your own, please share it with this blogger, through the COMMENTS area. Thanks Option Solving.
