Peel the Onion: What is DeSantis’s optimum option to emerge beyond Trump for 2024 Presidential run – Option B:Put forward a fresh GOP vision and election manifesto: by way of using Option Solving (OS)?

With Option B – Put forward a fresh GOP vision and election manifesto – as his preferred move, DeSantis will have to figure out the most likely way of doing that. His first course of action ought to be participating in a lot of listening to discern what would most appeal to GOP members across the board and what their priorities are. So, he needed to figure-out the most effective way of going about that, relative to the different power-bases within the GOP? This inspired another option solving exercise through “Peeling the Onion.”

His Peeling the Onion question proved to be: “What is DeSantis’s optimum option to emerge beyond Trump for 2024 Presidential run – using prior Option B: Put forward a fresh GOP vision and election manifestoconsidering 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.

He first came up with some fresh 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 new bookends his advisors decided he should consider, to flush out his most practicable options, are: “Just charge ahead with his own ideasLikely lose support;and “Draw upon prior GOP vision and election manifesto” Unlikely to be favorably received by GOP members. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely sub-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 sub-options – AA thru FF – which were then ready for DeSantis to consider after emotional distancing beforecoming to any final decision. He can then review these declared sub-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 sub-options with any new ones of your own.

While all these options look interesting, he was especially likely to be intrigued by – Option DD: Spend time with noted political “think tanks” to be shortly followed by Option EE. 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.
