Values and the 10-10-10 concept from Suzy Welch
Have you heard about the 10-10-10 idea (as discussed in Suzy Welch’s book by the same name)?
Have you ever had a difficult decision to make and needed some way to put your alternatives into perspective? To take away some of the confusion from all the options and consequences that were swirling around in your head?
The basic idea of Suzy’s 10-10-10 method is to use 3 time horizons as a decision making tool.
What would be the implications of your decision in 10 minutes (near term), 10 months (mid term) and 10 years (long term)?
If you watch the video of Suzy on the Today show with Matt Lauer (clip is available on Suzy’s website
), she mentions the importance of understanding your values
as part of the 10-10-10 decision process.
“Thinking about those consequences in each of those timeframes is not as powerful if you don’t bring your values to it. How do I want to live? It is not a device. It is a way to shape your life and that happens when you bring your values to it.”
Do you know what your values are? Are you living your values?
If you are wondering what your values truly are, click here to learn about a”tool” under development called Value Discovery™ Cards that help you identify values that you are currently living as well as the values that you want in your life (but may not currently have IN your life).
If you have a good handle on your values… you can use the 10-10-10 method to help you make better decisions !
