Issue 18: Pros and Cons List - A Timeless Classic

Issue 18: Pros and Cons List - A Timeless Classic

"The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision."


Welcome to our our eighteenth edition!

Today, we revisit the classic decision-making tool: the Pros and Cons List. While simple, it is one of the most effective frameworks for quickly assessing the benefits and drawbacks of a decision. Sometimes, the simple solution is the best!

Grab your notebook and a pen and let's go!


  • Draw a line down the middle of a piece of paper to create two columns. Label one "Pros" and the other "Cons."

  • Think of the decision you're facing and list all the positive outcomes or benefits in the Pros column.

  • In the Cons column, list all the negative outcomes or drawbacks.

  • Review both lists. Be sure to consider the weight and impact of each pro and con, not just the number of items listed.

  • Make your decision based on which list aligns more closely with your values, goals, and the outcomes you're willing to accept.

Why this matters: The Pros and Cons list helps clarify your thoughts and priorities by quickly mapping out the possible positive and negative outcomes of a decision. It’s a straightforward way to weigh your options and make more informed choices. 

Happy Mother's Day!

It's Mother's Day in the US today. I want to recognize and celebrate all the incredible mothers out there and also honor my Mami and the other amazing women whose shoulders I stand on.🌹

Whether you're making decisions for your family, planning special celebrations, or offering your unwavering love and support,  remember and revel in how much you are loved. You make "family" happen. 

Next week's preview

We’ll be introducing the Six Thinking Hats method! I've been looking forward to giving you a short but functional step-by-step for this unique approach to problem-solving that encourages looking at a situation from multiple perspectives. It opens the door to more creative and comprehensive solutions. Can't wait!

Until then,
