The McDonald’s Theory

2013-05-02 RonaldJon Bell’s strategy:

I use a trick with co-workers when we’re trying to decide where to eat for lunch and no one has any ideas. I recommend McDonald’s.

An interesting thing happens. Everyone unanimously agrees that we can’t possibly go to McDonald’s, and better lunch suggestions emerge. Magic!

Seems plausible, but I think some people suffer from being afraid to start things, and some people suffer from starting too many things and/or not finishing things.

I know where my weakness lies…
