What do you do???

When you have 2 things, both equally good , equally interesting, and well, equal in almost all respects, but you have to choose only one of those two, what do you do???

Procrastinate. One of the two will go away ;)

hehe nice idea gandalf. I'd say go with your gut, intuition. I'm wondering if you are still plagued by this dilemma :)

Karthik said...

@gandalf,

Good idea. i am sure that will work most times. :)

@nat,
I kind of, i ended up doing what u said.. Ofcourse, a lot of logic went into as well. Am not in this dilemma anymore. I got the answer, the day after i wrote the blog :)

Toss a coin!!


Better still:
1. Assign a key value to each of the options (2 or more).

2. Use a pseduo-random number generator.

(or)

1. Design a rule-based inference system based on your preferences and let it take the decision for you.

(or)

Take a FIFO or a LIFO based decision.

(or)


Just choose one and forget that the other existed :P

@parag,
I think, it is what you think, unless you are thinking about something else ;)
