The old school way of making a decision by jotting down pros and cons still works. (Another great exercise to do in tandem is “fear setting” which Tim Ferris explains here.)
But it’s not just the number on each side that wins the day.
It’s how powerful and meaningful they are to you.
A single meaningful pro can outweigh a dozen less significant cons.
For if that lone pro is connected to a strong enough why, the decision to proceed will always be a good one. In the long run, anyway.
