A Method for Making Decisions

Once upon a time, I was in turmoil over a life decision. A war was going on inside my head, and I wasn't quite sure which side was going to win.

I was eaten alive by a decision I was trying to make. Smack in the middle of it all, I discovered a powerful, step-by-step process for making decisions.

That was over 30 years ago. Now I'm offering simple process I discovered to you.

Though deceptively simple, it has helped me calmly evaluate my options and make the best decisions of my life, ones that I have never regretted. I want to share the process with you in my book Making Decisions, now in its third edition.

In its pages I've spelled out a decision-making process in a simple workbook format so you can easily learn and apply the method. From it's pages you'll learn:
  • Seven easy steps that you can reuse over and over again.
  • A trick of using both the left and right sides of your brain.
  • One possible source of your inner battle is and how to win it.
  • How to arrange and prioritize your options in a progressively clearer way.
  • How to find out which options are more important to you than others.
  • The peace that comes from knowing you've made the right decision before and after you make it.
This method was a gift that came to me in the summer of 1981, just months before our first child was born. The decision I made that summer was one of the best I've made in my life. It stuck and has blessed my life in countless ways since. I hope it blesses your life too.
