What improvement in some other objective would just make up for dropping
Job A's enjoyment from "great" to "good?"
Heuristic: pick an objective Job A is weak at this may make the later steps easier
I have traded off enjoyment for skills in Job A; now I can eliminate enjoyment.

What improvement in some other objective would just make up for dropping
Job B's skills from perple & computers to operations & computers?

What improvement in some other objective would just make up for dropping
Job C's flecibility from jogh to moderate?
I have traded off flexibility for vacation in Job C; now I can eliminate flexibility

Imaginary C is now dominated bu imaginary A; therefore real C is also dominated by real A!

If two extra vacation days a year and a retirement plan are worth $400 a month, take Job A
If not, take Job B!
