pro/con list.

I hate it when someone suggests making a pro/con list to aid in making a big decision. Unless you’re ten years old, I don’t think the pro/con list is a very helpful tool. In theory, yes, it should work. Make a list of pros, make a list of cons…and see which side has the most points. But there is a flaw. Life is complicated and the pro/con list doesn’t give any weight to each item. You could have 10 cons and 1 pro, but that single pro could be the most important thing in the world and outweigh all of the cons put together. It deserves more than one line! Someone should develop a weighted pro/con list…kind of like a weighted average!
