Philosopher Ruth Chang is my new hero.
With a very analytical mind that sees every issue from several perspectives, I have always had trouble making decisions. The pros and cons always seem to equal each other out. I usually end up just closing off my mind, closing my eyes, and going with my gut. As I get older, I have learned to just jump to the gut part and stop spending days or weeks (weeks. I’m not kidding you.) ruminating.
After what I can only guess was at least weeks of ruminating, Ruth Chang has come up with a new way of approaching these decisions that seemingly have no perfect outcome. It’s a really great way of approaching them. Not to sound dramatic, but it has relieved me of my ruminating about all the options of life and their merits.
Take a look.
