About the book:
In today's accelerated world, with its competing priorities, information overload, and uncertain options, we constantly find ourselves steered by impulse, stress, or expedience:
Should I uproot my family for a higher paying job? Should I stay late at work or attend my daughter's dance recital? Should we go on a long-overdue vacation or save the money for a rainy day? With no easy answers, decisions large and small are too often left rudderless, without a guiding strategy to help us navigate them.
Powerful help is on the way! Suzy Welch's 10-10-10: A Life-Transforming Idea (Scribner, on-sale: April 14, 2009; hardcover/$24.00) is an easy-to-apply, remarkably effective process to cut through the noise and provide instant clarity for solving our personal and professional dilemmas and creating meaningful, authentic lives.
A contributor to O, The Oprah Magazine and a columnist with her husband Jack Welch of BusinessWeek's "The Welch Way," Suzy Welch offers a straightforward and transparent decision-making approach based on evaluating a dilemma's consequences in the immediate present, near-term, and distant future—in 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years. Both pragmatic and profound, 10-10-10 brings our values and deepest goals into clear focus and helps us reclaim our lives at home, in love, and at work.
Sound simple? Not quite. Recounting poignant experiences from her own life and the lives of others who are already living the 10-10-10 way, Suzy Welch reveals how exploring the impact of our decisions in different time frames invariably surfaces unconscious agendas, fears, needs and desires, with outcomes that are truly inspiring.
Who can use 10-10-10? The answer is anyone; the applicability of the 10-10-10 process is uniquely broad. Whether applied by college students, busy mothers, business executives, artists, government employees, or entrepreneurs, 10-10-10 is already showing its effectiveness in decisions minor and major, routine and radical, consistently changing lives for the better. From a feisty welfare administrator in Philadelphia who used 10-10-10 to reinvent his workplace, to a fragile Midwestern widow who leaned on 10-10-10 to gain the courage to find love again, to a high-powered retail executive who used 10-10-10 to help her raise her young twins amidst her job challenges, the stories of 10-10-10 in Suzy Welch's intimate and deeply compassionate book send a crucial message. A new idea has arrived to help every one of us who has ever yearned for a life of our own making.
Readers of O magazine discovered this groundbreaking idea when Suzy Welch first introduced it in her column. Now, in this revelatory book, she reveals the full power of 10-10-10, a transformative idea that replaces chaos with consistency, confusion with clarity, and guilt with joy.
