30 Day Challenge Update and a New Book

Decisive-ART

I just entered the second week of my 30 day challenge to post new content every day and so far it’s been great!

Today, I’m going to recommend a book I just finished. The book is called Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work by Chip and Dan Heath. I’m a big fan of the books that the Heath brothers have written including “Made to Stick” and “Switch”.

In Decisive, the Heath Brothers delve into the psychology and process behind decision making. Although Decisive puts emphasis on business decision making, there is also a number of great ideas on personal decision making.

One of my biggest takeaways from the book is a decision making process called “WRAP”. Wrap is an acronym that stands for the following four ideas:

– Widen your Options
– Reality-Test your Assumptions
– Attain Distance Before Deciding
– Prepare to be Wrong

You’ll have to read the book to get a better understanding of the process but i’ll leave you with a link to the book website where you can read the first chapter for free!

Pick up a copy of Decisive and learn how to make better decisions.
