What is DeSantis’s optimum option to emerge beyond Trump for 2024 Presidential run: by way of using Option Solving (OS)?

With the mediocre mid-term elections behind the GOP, there’s a great deal of speculation about Ron DeSantis, Florida’s Governor, making a run for the GOP’s Presidential nomination in 2024. This was particularly fueled by his much better than average success in his State’s governor’s race. However, he has a tough decision to make regarding a run against former President Trump, who has already declared another bid for the White House. With this key factor in mind, DeSantis will have to decide upon his best option to become a formidable option for GOP members. His advisors huddled to figure out his best option.

They initiated  the following question: “What is DeSantis’s optimum option to emerge beyond Trump for 2024 Presidential run; considering 1)  Trump still has major GOP rank-and-file support, 2) Trump is a highly vindictive person, 3) Mid-term’s raised many questions about Trump’s future value, and 4) DeSantis is a more politically savvy and balanced personality?” Again, it’s appropriate for his advisors to focus on just these four considerations to reduce complexity in his eventual decision, when that ultimate moment arrives – despite there being many other possible considerations out there.

His advisors now had to figure-out possible 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.   

The extreme bookends his advisors decided he should consider, to flush out his most practicable options, are: Play Trump’s slanging match gameLikely lose support;and “Form new Party wing” GOP unlikely to be successful with divisions. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which now show why they are not a good idea for consideration. Even so, these bookends now nudged his advisors intuitive thinking into high gear again to come-up with a range of realistic options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

They then posed six realistic options – A thru F – which were then ready for DeSantis to consider after emotional distancing beforecoming to any final decision. He can 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 team’s proposed options with any new ones of your own.

While all these options look interesting, he was especially likely to be intrigued by – Option B: Put forward fresh GOP vision and election manifesto to be shortly followed by Option D. He may subsequently decide to sleep on it and seek input from others before the following morning and then proceed accordingly. He’s strongly advised to stick with his overall, intuitive choice.
