I've been thinking about the way I evaluate things lately. I've done so by finding the pros and cons and judging based on the cons. if there are too many cons it's just not worth it to me.
It's a pretty simple way to look at things in the world and make decisions. But nothing is 100% good or bad. Those quick judgements of the cons might make me dismiss the positives before I can experience them.
The rating we attribute to things is based on our unique perspectives. But it's hard to form an accurate opinion based on a few point. The quantity of pros and cons might not be as important as the subjective quality of each.
Now I've been thinking maybe there isn't anything that only has only pros. Everything has its pros and cons. You just have to decide what they mean to you. Maybe you just need to try it all and find the cons you can live with.
It requires a change in perspective from judgement first and experience later. Instead you have to give things a fair chance and then judge based on the results you observe. Which is a lot easier said than done when you're gut feelings have such a strong bearing on your experience. But maybe it's worth trying?
