What is the key to making better decisions? Dan Markovitz, author of "The Conclusion Trap - Four Steps to Better Decisions" argues that one of the biggest mistakes we all make is the idea that we do not understand the issue at hand as well as we could. We often rush into our decisions without having a clear, complete idea of what is in front of us.

It was published in 1997 and is still one of my favorite books.

Looking For AND

What do you think when you see the title of a book being "It's All Possible - How to lead an epic life and unleash the high performance hero within you?" I'm a big believer in the positive role of optimism, hope and positive emotions AND I'm kind of a skeptic by nature. Well Rob Hartnett, set me straight...he's no skeptic and he does not believe in being overly optimistic.
