Publisher's Summary

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.10-10-10's applicability is uniquely broad. Whether it is used by college students or busy mothers or senior business executives, artists, government administrators, or entrepreneurs, 10-10-10 has shown its effectiveness in decisions large and small, routine and radical, consistently changing lives for the better.Readers of O magazine discovered this pragmatic and innovative idea when Suzy Welch first introduced it in her column. Now, in this immensely useful and revelatory book, she fully explains the power of 10-10-10, a transformative idea that can replace chaos with consistency, guilt with joy, and confusion with clarity.

Some good ideas, not easy listening

I liked the 10-10-10 concept very much, and there are a few other ideas that are helpful. However, maybe it's just her natural accent, but this author's speech is so clipped that she sounds irritated, as if she's already TOLD you these things a million times. Due to this, I tried but couldn't listen to it after buying it. She just never calms down and talks in a relaxed way. A different narrator would help. Also there are way too many stories; this gets redundant and distracting after a while. I'd much rather hear her own experiences with this method and how it can help her and us to make wiser decisions.

10 10 10 My Purchase

Was it worthwhile using a credit on my account for this book?
In 10 minutes I found it interesting, but no great epiphany. Think about decisions and possible consequences in both the short and long term to weigh gravity. In 10 months I will most likely recall the name but not the author. In 10 years I will most likely not recall either. The irony here is that this idea, which Welch seems to think is an earth-shattering process of decision making clarification, originally appeared in a magazine article for O. And the reason why is that a magazine article essay is all the space you need, and then some. Book-length its not, unless you want to hear endless stories of women and decision making moments.
