We tend to decide between one option or another, and we believe that these are the only options, but the reality is that we have more options most times.
Today I want to talk to you about Owning The Frame. A mental model will help us see more options and make better decisions. How?
- Vanishing options: let’s assume that one of the options is not there. What would I do? Can I make the other option work?
- This AND that: Can I make both decisions work together?
- Opportunity cost: What’s the cost of the decision(s)?
- Gathering more information: Most times, I need to get more information before making a decision.
By implementing one or many of these tools, we can see better options and improve our outcomes.
