There are ways to organize sets of ideas. Like
in a story or a narrative, one can look for the conclusion in the
end or sometimes, as most flashback stories would narrate, you can
go backward. This is also true in the process of Deductive and
Inductive Logic. You could either start from Generalization to
Specific details in the process of Deduction. You may create your
hypothesis first like: Earning more in three years through small
business ventures with close friends is possible if and giving
specific details like how to do it or what should be done to follow
the organized pattern towards a successful conclusion.
On the other hand, Inductive Logic may involve
specific details first (like what are the factors that lead to
bankruptcy) to form a general conclusion or an overall analysis. In
creating an organized strategy to manage time, you can also employ
the deductive and inductive way of projecting ideas or concepts. To

At the grocery, when buying things, you might

In writing a book, one would have a general
idea of the story and the flow of the narrative.
In preparing for a party, one would be wary of
the theme or the desired atmosphere that the organizer had thought
In some research work for an unknown knowledge

that will give conclusive results.
Planning for a grand vacation might have no
conclusions yet but during the preparation or the actual trip, a
person may experience a lot of different moments, which can
contribute to a memorable vacation or a regrettable one.
To make architectural plans, much specific
details should be considered (though this can also be done using a
general theme or conclusion). The final plan is based on the
availability of the resources, the time frame on which the house or
structure should be built, and other factors that are involved in
In solving some problems, you have to know the
different factors, which might have been the cause of the dilemma.
There are many things to think of in solving difficult situations
but these factors or details would help you create a clear picture
about what might have happened and what can be done to resolve
conflicts and contradictions.
The process of logical reasoning is a good
strategy to create and organize plans and execute preparations that
you have made.
There are more ways to create strategies and
