I really want to finish this book but I’m only on chapter 3.
I need to read this book again before my next PD.
It’s book 4 in the series. I can’t wait to see where it goes.
Time is short. I need to read before finalizing my plans.
Just one more chapter. But wait a chapter is short so that’s probably only about 5 minutes.
Read and jot down notes, craft a response. That could be an hour per chapter.
How do I decide?
I could flip a coin but if I don’t like the results will I change the requirements to “best 3 out of 5 results”?
If I could think of 6 alternatives, I could roll a die. (Or all even could be one choice and all odd the other.)
Is “luck” a good way to make a decision?
With 425,000,000 results . . . what follows is a decision making process from Google (Link).
I’m at Step 3 and I need to identify the alternatives.
- Read text A
- Read text B
- Read neither text
- Read both texts
- Begin to develop the work for the day and then determine the need to read additional resources.
- Read text C
So obviously, I’m not ready to make a decision YET.
When perhaps should you have prudently waited?
Or had a process in place?
When do we “rush to action” when perhaps patience and thought is required?
