I went to an informational talk with a group of women about the decision tree that we all are asked to make in our lives.
The decision tree is a model that’s used to predict what a person will do next. For instance, if we were to ask people “If you were to make a decision and you were to take any action, what would you do?” they would generally tell us something like “I would take a nap.” This is very similar to the way we feel about our decisions.
The difference between an informational and decision tree is that if we ask people to make an educated guess what their actions would be, they will tell us. This means they will tell us everything they know and that is how we would decide.
My biggest complaint about this list is that it’s pretty easy to use it to figure out who to ask. I had to do a lot of digging into the code I had to write when I was on this list. I’ve seen this system too many times before.
My main complaint is that the site is an awful place to be. I have to tell you, I will be looking for more. And if you don’t find me, leave me a comment.
This is my biggest gripe with the site. You really have to use your imagination to figure out who to talk to. There are so many people on this list, I dont know where to turn. And yes, I am talking to the guy who has the biggest, weirdest, most ridiculous action. And I know I should not be talking to him, but still.
This is a list I made up, not a list you made up too. So I will not be offended if you tell me you made it. I just made a list, so I do not feel like I can change it.
The problem is that it is very hard to sort out who to talk to. The key is to find a way to sort it out.
The action isn’t even on the list. There are hundreds of other people who have the same problem, and the one you are looking at is one of the largest. We would have to get on a list of people with the same problem and then talk to them. A simple spreadsheet would be all you need, and it is very easy to do. Just type in the problem and a few keywords, and hit “Calculate.
The more you do it, the more it goes by. This is true no matter how complex or broad the problem is. The key is to get people to sit down and work it out. You can even use an infographic (like the one above) to help them. You can use a chart of the problem with the first step being “Find a way to solve it”, then the second being “Find a way to make a change”.
