Peeling the Onion: What’s my optimum option to leverage powerful Mercury Communication Preference Survey – Option B- Sharpen the reasons for people to access it: by way of using Option Solving (OS)?

After contemplating the six options that could enable your editor to leverage his powerful Mercury Communication Preference Survey; he decided that Option B, Sharpen the reasons for people to access it, was his optimum initial choice. He then decided to Peel the Onion and see what sub-options that would reveal; in terms of key reasons for people to access the survey.

With this in mind, it prompted him to create a fresh appropriate question as follows: “Peel the Onion: What’s my optimum option to leverage powerful Mercury Communication Preference Survey: Option B – Sharpen the reasons for people to access it; considering 1) it is remarkably accurate, 2) it can be an effective marketing tool, 3) it’s quick and convenient to access online, and 4) it can spur new client relationships?Again, it’s appropriate for him to focus on just these four considerations to reduce complexity in his eventual decision; when that ultimate decision moment arrives – despite there being many other possible considerations out there.

He then decided to invoke fresh applicable yin and yang “bookends”,as these will help keep his intuitive mind focused against other immediate mental distractions. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

These turned out to be: “Not important to know”Likely insecure and/or unambitious person;and “Already done something similar” Try for pro-bono “taster” for person compare. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which show why they are not really for consideration. Even so, these bookends now nudge his intuitive thinking into high gear again, to consider a range of realistic sub-options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

He has now come up with six realistic sub-options – AA thru FF. He was then ready to pursue emotional distancing beforecoming to any outcome decision. He will then review these declared options, perhaps after 2 hours, later in the day, or first thing the following morning, before arriving at an optimal conclusion. You can replace his proposed options with any of your own.

While all these options look interesting, he was likely initially particularly intrigued by – Sub-Option AA: Can sharpen understanding of personal attributes. He then decided to sleep on it and seek input from others until the following morning and then proceed accordingly. He is strongly encouraged to stick with whatever option the overall, intuitive choice happens to be.
