Decision-Making 101

This is what I do to my friends when they're trying to make major decisions (except I use a flip of the coin, rather than a Magic 8-ball).

And it works.

If you're unsure as to what you want to do, and you end up leaving it to chance, so to speak, and the results of that coin toss or shake of the ball disappoint you, then there's a good chance you already know what it is that you want.

Of course, this only works if you're able to frame your decision as a binary one, rather than an open-ended question. And, sometimes, you're just not able to do that.
