Here's an idea i've been bouncing around for a while and it works rather well. When it comes to making business and other decisions there's always benefit to exploring different angles and ideas.
What if you could have your own virtual council of advisors, mentors and achievers on tap to help out when you need? Using PB in expanded mode with a customised background creates a great environment for your virtual brainstorming decision matrix. I've included an introductory set of people for your virtual team but you can add others as well as friends and colleagues.
To run it, simply write and set-type the proposition in the parent thought, go to expanded mode and assess for each of the people what they think of the proposition and whether it's an acceptable risk; place the thought in the corresponding position on the scale. Then set-type what you think their vote would be. Note that they might find it acceptable and a good idea but still 'vote' no. Following your gut instinct on the vote works well. I have a multiscreen setup so am keeping my virtual team up on one screen ready to advise!
This is the tip of the iceberg and I will be building more capability into it and the tool will further come into its own once expanded views can be saved so that a library of decision outcomes can be built up. In the meantime this is a useful glimpse into expansive thinking and a great example of PB versatility.
