making a decision | part III

Once you have identified your options (you need at least two), the next step is to list pros and cons. This might seem tedious and even childish, but it is a necessary part.

St Ignatius teaches that when we list pros and cons we need to list both on all options. Not all the pros on option A and all the cons on option B. In order to make a wise decision you need both on both. Take proper time to think (and write) through them, speak to your partner, your family, your friends, ask advice, do research and dig as deep as you can.

Do this, again, with a pen and paper.

Get skin in the game, make those lists.
