Two Options Exercise

This is an exercise to try sometime when you have two important options you are considering. It’s the “Flip A Coin” exercise.

Designate heads to one of the choices and tails to the other choice. Then flip a coin and notice how you feel once you see which choice won.

How you feel as a result of the flip is your intuition at work. It suddenly becomes quite clear how you feel about the option that won and maybe even what was better about the other choice.

This exercise of taking that one small action can really tune you in to how you would feel about the choices rather than just logically thinking them through using your mind only. How you feel about the decision is much more predictive of how you will do with that decision once you’ve kicked it off into action.
