The more options you have to choose from the better your decision will be. Good photographers take many photographs, then pick only the best. It’s the same with decision making; the more options you have to choose from, the better your decision will be.
This is a step where you should spend plenty of time to uncover all possible choices. Start by listing all the options you can think of that meet your criteria. Then combine parts and pieces of different options to come up with more options. Investigate these options and other options may appear. Brainstorm. Think of a really crazy way to solve the problem. Imagine you were someone else, an expert, what would you do? Ask other people for their ideas. Imagine a solution and think backwards to how you came up with it. Think outside of the box, often an option is right in front of us and we don’t see it. Use your intuition.
