One week ago I started asking Twitter whenever I needed to make a decision. My post from last week explains why I did it and what it entailed. Also, to read about how it happened, lookup the Twitter hashtag #asktwitter and you'll see a lot of the conversations.

Now that the seven days are up, I thought I would post some observations and highlights:
- People on Twitter decided how I travelled, what went in the shopping trolley, what and when I drank, read, ate, wore, how I listened to music, and what I bought.
- I now ride a bike. On day one, I asked how I should travel into work. Twitter consensus said I should start riding the bike. Specifically, the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme that started in London a week ago. So I spent the week cycling into work. I'm now properly addicted to exercise and will be biking into work for the foreseeable future.
- I have some great new recommendations for beers and coffees to try
- Instead of just buying some trainers, I am going to get my 'gait' analysed (?)
- Twitter is REALLY good when you want a recommendation for a lunch venue. That got by far the most useful responses
- Strangely, I seem to make fewer decisions than I thought on a day to day basis. Someone thought that was a sign of a good manager. Whilst flattered, I disagree. It's just the way life seems to be. I would recommend this to anyone though. It won't ruin your life at all, but you will find out a heap of interesting stuff in the process.
