Summary
A shower song to remind me why it's useful to write down alternatives and reasoning.

If you're happy you decided, write it down!
If you're happy you decided, write it down!
If you're happy you decided, for your future's sake don't hide it.
If you're happy you decided, write it down!

If you've thought of alternatives, then write them down!
If you've thought of alternatives, then write them down!
If you've thought of alternatives, which later might be missed,
If you've thought of alternatives, then write them down!

If you've got some different angles, write them down!
If you've got some different angles, write them down!
If you've got some different angles, which in memory might be mangled,
If you've got some different angles, write them down!


The original Diary-Driven Design home page discusses the ideas in a bit more serious fashion with examples.

I was thinking about a recent chain of decision making with regards to a hardware purchase and thought, I should record these decisions the same way I do in software design decisions, especially for the ones I'm going to stew about. Add hot water and the song was born!
