Deciding what to read? Get Decisive

I recently joined a book club at work. Decisive: How To Make Better Choices In Life And Work was the first title we read and discussed. Admittedly, I almost put it off, because it sounded like a self-help book by another life guru rattling of acronyms to get me to live my best life.

Authors Chip and Dan Heath aren't life gurus, but they offer useful work/life tips – complete with acronyms, like decision-making with WRAP:

  • Widen your options

  • Reality test assumptions

  • Attain distance before deciding

  • Prepare to be wrong

Honestly, the Heaths have ways of making common sense exercises feel like "ah-ha" moments. So if you "decide" to turn these exercises into work habits, then the Heaths have done their jobs.
