Decision Grid Part I: Introduction

Decision Grid which visually demonstrates how thoughts and ideas process within our minds.

The Decision Grid follows the flow of decision-making from the moment a question or situation arises to the instant a solution, an answer or hypothesis seems to magically pop into our minds.
