ANALYZE YOUR INFORMATION
Any sound analysis begins with a clear goal—an optimal outcome. You cannot analyze in a vacuum; you must analyze in terms of the particular results you are trying to achieve, whether you’re focusing on a question, an answer, a problem, or a solution. It’s also important to keep in mind the full range of results that constitute your goal: an answer may be very good in terms of one particular result, but very bad in terms of another.
If you analyze through the lens of what you are trying to achieve, you will be able to maintain your clarity and move forward.
