"Yes" or "No": The Guide to Better Decisions by Spencer Johnson
What are poor decisions or indecision costing you? This book attempts to provide a system for use in better business and personal decision-making. The book tells the story of the journey of a young man who takes a weekend hike and ascends a mountain in the company of "the guide" and several experienced executives. He soon discovers the six steps in the "Yes or No" system - three practical questions and three private questions that are used to arrive at better decisions. By using the advice of his guide and hiking companions, the author of this book shows how to stop confuson and focus on real needs, recognize the many options in each situation, see, in advance, the likely consequences of actions and use insight, intuition and integrity to determine the best course of action.
