Decisions, decisions, decisions!

I haven't read this book yet, but I love the idea behind it!

The book is called
10-10-10,” written by Suzy Welch. The core premise is that as a part of decision making, you should apply a 10-10-10 rule.

Essentially, whenever you make a decision, you should be asking yourself what the impact of your decision be in 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years. This gives a different perspective than your typical "split second" decision.

I'll have to remember to ask Sharlyn Lauby about this at the HR Florida state conference when I am live blogging there in August.
Sharlyn says that 10 years used to be thought of as long term, now three years is long term for strategic planning.

Maybe the sequel will be "3-3-3"!
P.S. - Sharlyn will also be moderating a panel at HR Florida which I will be a part of. The panel is called Blogging and HR: Can the two peacefully co-exist?
Panelists will include well know bloggers such as Kris Dunn, Laurie Ruettimann, Jessica Lee and myself. Please try to attend.
It will be very different than most of the concurrent sessions!
