Last night, I had an idea for a decision-making process which considers the emotional weight of each pro and con, and can be tailored to each individual.1. Think of the best and worst things that have ever happened to you.2. Assign a numeric value—above zero—to the best thing. That number will represent the highest value … Continue reading Experimental Decision-Making Model
I don't think I've actually tried using FutureMe in the past, but the name and concept sounds familiar. It was mentioned on Melyssa Griffin's "30 Ways to Feel Like You Accomplished Something Today" article (see #25) and thought I might give it a shot.

As I’m sure I’ve pointed out, I’ve had quite a few dreams about storms over the course of my life. When I was younger it was always a case of preparing for them: knowing at least a day in advance (sometimes even being able to say that it’d happen on a Saturday) that one was … Continue reading Storm Dream
