Daily Prompt: Dilemma

via Daily Prompt: Dilemma

When I first heard the phrase “caught on the horns of a dilemma”, I was so fascinated by the expression that I wanted to learn it by heart and use it on suitable occasion. In fact I invented suitable occasions to use the phrase so that I could make an impression upon the people I dealt with and make them run for the dictionary to find out the meaning. But how do you remember the phrase? I imagined a man really caught on the horns of a charging bull. Yes. Associate any word, phrase or a mathematical or chemical formula you want to remember (or even the name of a person) with a funny situation. That is the trick.

Well, coming to the practical point : What do you do when you are really caught on the horns of a dilemma? (To those not familiar with the term: ‘dilemma ‘ means a situation where you are left with two choices which are both unfavourable) Sleep it off The next morning, when your mind is fresh, you will be in a better position to choose the right alternative. But when in emergency and expected to take the decision immediately? Bring your index finger and thumb together and relax a while. You may also close your eyes if safe. Allow your inner mind to take the decision for you. In most cases, you will choose the right answer. In yoga terms, this position of the fingers is called ‘chin mudhra’.
