How To Make Better Decisions
On December 31, the new book, Decisions, hits the market. As seen on Public Television, the book by Robert L. Dilenschneider, features vignettes on 23 individuals who made decisions that shaped the world.
Each chapter offers practical thinking on how these women and men made decisions. You can use their decision-making skills as guidance at work, in your leadership role, and in your daily life.
You’ll learn decision making tips from Harry Truman, Margaret Thatcher, Mohammed Ali, Rachel Carson, Pablo Picasso and others who made decisions during war and peace, and in fields of science, commerce and invention.
Author Dilenschneider suggests takeaways about decision-making from each featured historical figure. Some of my favorite decision-making lessons from history and from the book include these:
- Own your decisions. Be responsible for them and for their implications. Do not be reactionary—that is, making decisions to spite others or because of outside pressure—but do be respectful of their effect on others.
As the new year starts, add this fascinating and instructional book to your must-read list for 2020.
