I was preparing my Dino kale salad with hard-boiled egg yesterday morning, and did a quick scan of the cover story in the San Francisco Chronicle (owned by the mighty Hearst Corp.).
The headline read:
I didn’t get it: why would the Chronicle run a headline that simply said “Bakery boss”?
It had a picture below it of two people hugging…I was still confused.
Did a local baker get promoted to “boss” and that somehow was newsorthy?
I’m a former journalist and the first rule of headlines is that it should be compelling enough to make the reader want to read on.
Then I noticed that there was a sticker on the paper and maybe that was hiding something. …
I wrote about the Win-Win Exercise earlier today and it reminded me that I have three other decision-making tips I use on a regular basis.
These are techniques I use when there’s a real close call (“50-50” so to speak) to make; they are often the most important decisions you’ll make.
So I’m putting all four decision-making tips here for easy access…plus I also remembered that I have this really cool illustration (below) that my nephew did for the topic!
If it’s a really tough decision on whether to take action or not take action, it is often the tougher decision that turns out to be the right one. …
A family friend asked for career advice the other day — he was trying to make a decision between finding a new job or staying put at his current job.
He was torn — almost manic — about which way to go…so I busted out the “Win-Win” exercise inspired by Yogi/Life Coach Terry.
I like using the “Win-Win Exercise” for making tough decisions — when the choice seems to be close to 50/50 — because you can literally get the best of both worlds…a true “win-win.”
Here we go!
