9780006379270: '''YES'' OR ''NO'': THE GUIDE TO BETTER DECISIONS'

What are poor decisions really costing you? Money? Time? Peace of mind? How many of us have made some poor decisions or have been trapped by indecision? Why were so few of us ever taught, in school or on the job, how to make better decisions?

"Yes" or "No" presents a brilliant and highly effective system that anyone can use to make better business and personal decisions--naturally and easily.

It is the story of the journey of a young man who takes a weekend hike and ascends a mountain in the company of "the guide" and several experienced executives.

By following the counsel of the guide and his hiking companions, the young man learns to break through confusion to:

  • focus on real needs, rather than mere wants
  • recognize the many options in each situation
  • see, in advance, the likely consequences of actions
  • use insight, intuition, and integrity to determine the best course of action

and, in the process, gain peace of mind, self-confidence and freedom from fear.

From Publishers Weekly:

This slim self-help guide to decision-making, written in the form of a fable by a coauthor of the bestselling One Minute Manager, involves both head and heart. In it, a mythical guide leading an imaginary mountain hike explains (and participants discuss) the touted decision-making system: having chosen an initial, often wrong action, we should ask a pragmatic question of our head and a private question of the heart--"yes" or "no"--to reach and act upon a final course. This simplisitic but shrewd little book counsels the decision-maker to learn to distinguish between need and want, illusion and reality, and to trust intuition and personal beliefs while avoiding half-truths and decisions made out of fear. 275,000 first printing; $250,000 ad/promo.
