Editorial Reviews

"According to Mike Whitaker, when evaluating where you are and where you want to be, you must realize that outcomes are the result of your choices.  While there are many situations over which you have no direct control, there’s one thing you can control – your what-do-I-do-now reaction.   Here’s some advice from Whitaker’s “Toolkit” about making decisions:  Tool 1. Define your primary goals for career, relationships, lifelong learning, bucket list and retirement.  Recognizing that decisions in one area will have an impact on the others, choose “Five Prime Goals” from your list.  Tool 2.  “There’s only one #1”.  Rank your five in order of importance. Make decisions that support achievement of #1.  This will require some trade-offs with the other four.  As you make progress, the trade-offs diminish and you’ll find that there’s a new #1. Tool 3. When it comes to trade-offs, the long-term trumps the short-term.  Tool 4.  Measure progress.  At work, this can be easily achieved by crossing things of your prioritized to-do list.  Look back at the end of the workday at all you’ve done to move you closer to your goal.  Taking small steps toward a goal creates an ‘I’m doing it’ mindset." --Biz Books by Jim Pawlak, syndicated columnist and a member of The National Book Critic's Circle
