A Life Transforming Idea...

Decisions, Decisions! That’s what life is made up of, but what about those decisions you make that sometimes you think about and later regret and wish you could turn back time to reverse. What happens when you make those decisions?

Parenting is hard, let’s face it, it doesn’t come with an instruction manual and sometimes the stress of being a parent and the stress of actual life over top of that can become overwhelming and can have us making some of our not so best decisions. But what if we had just a little bit of help? A small tool per say that could enable us to use our brains and think through the choices and decisions that would impact our lives.

Best-selling author Suzy Welch who’s a mother of four and a columnist for BusinessWeek and O, The Oprah Magazine has written a book called 10-10-10: A Life Transforming Idea. This book provides mothers with a decision-making practice that is as simple as it is profound. Suzy shows us how to use the 10-10-10 method to remove the emotion and uncertainty of decision-making.

This method can help you dramatically change how you make both big and small choices in your life. She tells us that all we need to do is consider our options and their consequences in ten minutes, ten months, and ten years then compare them to your own set of values.

It’s not easy idea to apply to life, I can tell you, I’ve read through the book and have yet to try the concept, but it claims to enable Moms to think things through in a more significant way, explain them clearly to others, prepare for the consequences of their decisions, and feel confident about their choices.

Suzy shares her own experiences as a mother in the book through humor and candor along with stories of others who rely on the 10-10-10 method. The ways this method can be used to serve as a powerful tool to utilize within our families is fascinating, now if only I could put it to use.

The book gives intriguing insights into the life of an extremely dynamic and successful woman and is full of anecdotes that you will relate to. 10-10-10 is a great read, maybe it can help out you and your family with their decision making.
