Do you panic at the thought of making an important decision in your life? When faced with the prospect of changing jobs, getting married, or moving to a new home, do you vacillate, procrastinate, and run, hoping that the need to make a choice will go away? Or do you jump in headfirst just to get the decision over with?
If this sounds familiar, you are in luck, as Dr. Foster, Director of Boston's Chestnut Hill Institute, is here to help! Based on his twelve-year study, "What Do I Do Now?" presents 30 laws that great decision makers use to navigate their way successfully through tough choices. Each law is illustrated with real-life stories. You will learn why you shouldn't make a decision until you feel ready to do so (Law #2), why you must set priorities (Law #14), why obsessing over details is costly (Law #16), and why listening to friends for advice isn't necessarily the best thing to do (Law #24). Apply the laws in order and one at a time; you may find you need to use Law #1, Law #10, or all 30 laws, depending on your situation. Easy-to-apply exercises are included, and there are no mind-numbing pro/con lists.
Dr. Foster also gives his own professional advice in a series of essays entitled "Perspectives."
In concise and easy-to-understand language, he tells you, based on his experience, what the ten biggest decisions faced by people are and how to handle them; how to set priorities when you aren't quite sure what they are; and how you can tell that you've made the right decision.
Once you apply the 30 laws, you will see your decision-making skills grow, as well as your confidence! [via]
