After a long, long stretch of unemployment, I landed a temp job that somehow kicked my resume into high drive. Great news! However, the amount of interest I'm getting and the urgency with which everyone seems to need to hire is really overwhelming to me right now. I'm worried that I'll get swept along into accepting a position that may not be the best choice. Please help me figure this out! [more inside]

Some people say: “If you have doubt, it is there for a reason.”
Other people say: “Everyone has doubt. Don’t miss a golden opportunity because you don’t feel ready. No one ever feels 100% ready for anything until it happens.”
What is the line between a rational decision and a missed opportunity, and how do I tell the difference?

Looking for an efficient, respectful and fair process for a group of 10-15 people to reach a consesus.
Some of the desired results: everyone would be heard respectfully (talking stick?) and cast a vote, a maximum amount of people would end up aligned with the choice, minimized influence of power games and hidden agendas, speedy (1-2 minutes per participant, including voting, so w/ 10 participants, a solid decision could be made in 10-15, max 20 minutes)
Have you experienced an effective process supporting the above? What does it look like, step by step?
Is there a resource where I can look up practical approaches to community-based choice-making?
