In this episode of $30k questions, a podcast miniseries aimed to help you explore and implement money-making questions, let’s think about making binary decisions—and how often, we could consider a third and fourth option too. 

When presented with two options, it may be easy to stick within a decision binary. Here are some ways we can think outside of the box: 

  • Be creative in how you interpret binary decisions. Could you have a mix of options? Could you have something else entirely? 
  • This brings us to the fact that we are often not obligated to stick between two options.
  • In this episode, option three means neither and option four means both. You could choose not to make a decision based on what is presented—or you could see if both options are possible. 
  • Binary decisions can be seen as a starting point for your decision-making. 
  • Then, our decision-making can be more creative or open up more options—or both!
