Instructions:
Add factors (like commute, etc.)
Make sure you copy formulas if you add rows…
Change weights so that they add to 100 (see below cat weight column)
This forces you to understand how important these elements are to you relative to each other
I've shown my weights and scores for fictitious job options
Fill out green areas with scores from 1-10
Note for negatives, reverse your thinking (so a high score on a negative like Risk means it's NOT risky)
Use cat wt subtotals to help guide your weighting
Note that as you do, the weighted averages are shown as subtotals and absolute totals along the bottom.
Resulting scores are shown at the bottom of each option
