Book Review: 10-10-10: A Life-Transforming Idea by Suzy Welch
The simple wisdom in this book can be summed up in one sentence: When making decisions, it can be extremely clarifying to consider the potential consequences of the decision in the short term, mid-term, and long-term (10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years). Since the author admits that the idea is not original, the value of this book is its offering of so many interesting examples of how the idea can be applied, from household to boardroom.
I’m very glad I read this book, and I’ll encourage others, especially young people, to read it too. It’s a quick read, and for many — probably most — it will be extremely helpful if they apply what it teaches. I’d give it at least three out of five stars. It’s what I think of as a utility book: not fine literature, but still valuable and highly readable.
If you’ve already read it, please let me know what you thought about it. Also please share any other books you’ve found helpful in teaching you how to make decisions intelligently and decisively.
