How many times have you made a list of items concerning a decision you need to make and then written down the pros and cons of each option in that decision. What happens when have a variety of things that you need to choose from?
You can complete one of these on paper, but I’ve found this same prioritizing grid tool available online that makes it even easier to see what’s happening and to organize your thoughts. The classic grid was developed by Richard Bolles decades ago.
This prioritizing grid allows you to arrange up to 10 different items in a listing of priority using a very simple system. The benefit though is that sometimes the simplest solutions are really the best.
Enter your ten different options into the space provided. Then you work your way down the grid choosing which one of two you would prefer over the other. When you’ve completed the entire prioritizing grid, the options are listed for you in the order of your preference in completing the desired items are arranging your favorite list of something.
Very handy and useful. What other organization or planning techniques do you use for making decisions throughout your day?
