Peeling the Onion: Option E – ‘Settle on a key resolution based upon my intuition,’ as my best Resolution Option for the New Year: using Option Solving?

Having already gone through the option solving exercise, it is now easier for proponents to map out the sub-options connected to their earlier chosen Option. In this case I was working with Option E: “Settle on a key resolution, based upon my intuition, and then set out a serious game plan to fulfill.”
In the case of any participants, they will quickly set into formulating an optimal question with its due considerations. It could come out as: “What is likely to be my best Peel the Onion options for the New Year, based upon Option E – “Settle on a key resolution based upon my intuition”: considering that it’s not easy to stick with them; it’s not easy to come up with the right sub-options; and after so much traditional, rational thinking to be comfortable relying on ones intuition, at all?” They just selected the roughly 50% of considerations that were of the greatest importance…see this in our latest example.
Having got this far, they now created two framing yin and yang “bookends;” so as to assist their creative intuition find the most plausible option. The ‘bookends’ were, “Jump at first thing that comes to mind ” and “Go for a full rational analysis at the outset ,”… as shown in our Latest Example. It also shows why these two bookend options were the least favorable ones.
With my question and bookends in place once again, I was now challenged to produce at least five alternative, more practical options In this case, I produced six, although I didn’t show my true responses owing to the range of possibilities. For that reason I didn’t proclaim their choice of one particular option, in this week’s example..
Now these six were in place, I was ready to pursue some emotional distancing for about 30 minutes. I went off and chatted about something quite unrelated before returning to review my pictogram and made a spontaneous choice. Once done, I immediately used this choice to devise an action initiative while all the options and issues were still fresh in my minds. Now I had determined my New Year’s Resolution, for better or worse.
If you have an example of your own, please share it with this blogger, through the COMMENTS area. Thanks Option Solving. (NOTE: Next posting in 2 weeks: “Our best option for evicting a non-paying tenant?” Let’s have your COMMENTS or go to to connect with the blogger.)
