Toss a Coin

You need to make a decision? You could try tossing a coin!

So you have a choice to make. You’re torn between two options. You’ve established all the pros and cons. But you’re still not sure which road to take.

It’s time to get a coin out of your purse—and make one option heads (that’s the side of the coin carrying the imprint of a person’s head) and the other option tails (that’s the reverse of the coin).

After a short pause and a deep breath, you can toss your coin.

Are you satisfied by the decision the coin made for you? Great. Then you know what to do. However, if you feel uneasy and are wondering why you are letting a coin decide for you, you know you should probably go for the other choice instead.

Tossing a coin is a great way for us to test our gut feeling or intuition.

Have you ever done anything similar? If you decide to give it a try, do tell me if it works for you.
