Decisions with any consequence are tough to make. Kimble attempts to make it easier with The Art of Making Good Decisions. Kimble opens with three qualifiers: Booleans, objective, and subjective. Booleans are defined as the yes or no absolutes while objective measures preferences, values and weights, and the well-used heart is subjective. Kimble suggests an order to using the qualifiers by starting with the Booleans and then objective criteria and then finally subjective criteria. There are then seven tests to help with the subjective decision making, which includes strategies like the test of time, test of bias, and the test of outside input, to just name a few. Kimble provides ample examples such as deciding on candidates for a job and this method really does improve the process for finding the best candidate.
Kimble gives the reader numerous examples, some serious and others a bit more light-hearted. Nonetheless, Kimble makes his point in an easy-to-understand format. Whether the reader needs to decide what investment to make or where to eat for dinner, he or she will be better armed with the tools to make the best decision. Kimble’s very casual manner makes the content helpful, less scary, and definitely will result in better long-term decisions. Try any or all the strategies that Kimble presents in The Art of Making Good Decisions for more fruitful, satisfying decisions.
