Abstract:

"Life presents us with a steady stream of decisions that we have to make. So, like it or not, we need to practice this skill every day - at work, at home, and in every aspect of our lives. Yet, we often make decisions without properly considering the context, options and implications of our actions. Or worse still, we end up managing the consequences of avoiding taking difficult decisions. Decide sets out a clear and easy to follow model that will enable you to make or contribute to effective decisions, proving that it does not have to be a long drawn out process, as long as you use a mixture of rational and lateral thinking. Free from business jargon and peppered with advice from successful leaders in all walks of life, Decide is a vital book for everyone whose life depends on having a better way of making decisions. Thought-provoking and practical, it will help you always make the right decision, whether you have 60 days, 60 minutes, 60 seconds - or a great deal less."--Cover page 4.
