Dilemmas, and that one tidy solution

Once it’s clear that you face a dilemma, rather than merely a problem, you’ve got to stop hoping for a comfortable solution.

A new piece of information might land that simplifies things.

Maybe an overlooked route will open up that changes things.

Scrutiny of the variables could tip the scales convincingly.

If you feel stuck with the dilemma after lots of careful thought though, you face a choice with inescapably uncomfortable trade-offs. The question isn’t “what’s the choice I want to take”, it’s “what’s the best choice while I get to make one”.

Kindly, keep going.
