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.
