I had the pleasure to review a new self-help book written by Suzy Welch, 10-10-10 — A Life-Transforming Idea.
This book is all about helping you make decisions in life — the small ones and the really large ones. By asking yourself three questions — “What are the consequences of each of my options in 10 minutes, in 10 months, and in 10 years?” — Suzy Welch believes you can make much better choices in your life.
I have always been someone who figures out decisions by herself, and I trust my gut feeling. This book made me rethink that process. Suzy Welch points out that going with your instinct might work in the short run but that one often forgets to consider the long-term, 10-year, ramifications of an important decision. I believe that is probably very likely. I will apply the 10-10-10 technique to help me decide if I want to send my little son to pre-school for 8 hours a week this year. Would it benefit him or not? I think by using the 10-10-10 process, I will come to the right decision. (Read more)
