Today I was thinking about a question most of the people ask sometimes when I bring forward the discussion about happy life and the work we do for survival. Some of the people say gosh don’t even talk about it “I hate my job” or “it’s Monday tomorrow” Even in my life I had moments “Should I quit my job to start my own business?” And which I did and again got back to full time work to make sure I’m financially healthy to spend the way I want and do the things I want do while contributing and learning from large businesses.
We mostly need advice and support when it comes to tough decisions like:
“Should I quit my job?”
“Should I start a business?”
“Should I invest in my higher education?”
“Should I move to different city and find another job?”
“Should I fire an employer and become my own boss like “The $100 Startup” tells us to do?” (The book was one of the best books by Chris Guillebeau which I read last month while I was having some free time at my work 🙂
Today I’m excited to share about some of the books I read recently and the first one I would like to introduce is book by Seth Godin, “The Dip: The Extraordinary Benefits of Knowing When to Quit (and When to Stick)“. A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit is the tenth published book by Seth Godin. The book shows the extraordinary benefits of knowing when to quit and when to stick . I wished I read it earlier and some of the decisions I took might have been better when I look back on times in 2012. Anyway the lessons always make us strong and helps to build the toughest soul possible.
Also there is another interesting guy name Dan Heath who wrote a book called Decisive: Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work, Dan reveals a simple framework for making better decisions.
The Amazon book summary says “In Decisive, the Heaths, based on an exhaustive study of the decision-making literature, introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases. Written in an engaging and compulsively readable style, Decisive takes readers on an unforgettable journey, from a rock star’s ingenious decision-making trick to a CEO’s disastrous acquisition, to a single question that can often resolve thorny personal decisions.”
Along the way, we learn the answers to critical questions like these: How can we stop the cycle of agonizing over our decisions? How can we make group decisions without destructive politics? And how can we ensure that we don’t overlook precious opportunities to change our course?
Decisive is the Heath brothers’ most powerful—and important—book yet, offering fresh strategies and practical tools enabling us to make better choices. Because the right decision, at the right moment, can make all the difference.
So if you’re currently struggling with a tough decision, you’ll benefit from this two bestselling book which you can easily get on front of your eyes within few seconds if you have the Kindle PC reader or the iPhone or Android Kindle reading platform installed on your devices.
