Book Review- 10-10-10 by Suzy Welch

Any choice you make -

any decision -

will benefit from


We all want to lead a life of our own making. But in today's accelerated world, with its competing priorities, information overload, and confounding options we can easily find ourselves steered by impulse, stress, or expedience. Are our decisions the right ones? Or are we being governed, time and time again, and against our best intentions, by the demands of the moment?

A transformative new approach to decision making, 10-10-10 is a tool for reclaiming your life at home, in love, and at work. The process is clear, straightforward, and transparent. In fact, when you're facing a dilemma, all it takes to begin are three questions:

What are the consequences of my decision in 10 minutes? In 10 months? And in 10 years?

Sound simple? Not quite. Recounting poignant stories from her own life and the lives of many other dedicated 10-10-10 users, Suzy Welch reveals how exploring the impact of our decisions in multiple time frames invariably surfaces our unconscious agendas, fears, needs, and desires-and ultimately helps us identify and live according to our deepest goals and values.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read Suzy Welch's new book 10-10-10 recently. I was intrigued by the concept and I must say that this book greatly exceeded even my very highest expectations. With a wonderful witty, almost conversational tone, Welch unveils a simplistic approach to considering every decision in your life in a terms of the consequences of the options in various time frames.

She uses a myriad of personal antidotes and intimate life stories to fully illustrate the process of 10-10-10 in a practical and inspiring way. I love that the flexibility provided in the process allows the 10-10-10 principle to truly apply to every major decision in life. From love relationships to parenting to work situations, just asking yourself three simple questions can revolutionize your decision making process.

Welch's insightful and instructive message gives you the confidence needed to make decisions with out regret and it keeps you in check with your personal life goals. I truly believe that everyone who has the chance to read this book and fully apply these principles in your life will be changed. I strongly recommend this book for everyone facing life's multiple and often daunting choices. It is life changing!!
