Decisions, decisions - we have to make hundreds of them every day! And, as the range of choices we make increases, so too does the accompanying stress... This handy book seeks to make the process more fruitful, more focused and less stressful. It uses a few simple tools that combine the wisdom of ancient spiritual traditions with the common sense of the 21st century and looks at questions such as: * How do we decide what choices to focus on? * How do we learn to be true to ourselves? * How do we implement our choices? * Can we change course if we get things wrong? Through offering suggestions - not rules - and short, accessible chunks of text, Margaret Silf encourages us to trust our own hearts and minds. Publishing at the same time as On Prayer by the same author.

Table of contents

This book explores five aspects of choice-making: Clearing the decks. Some choices are far more important than others. Some are not really ours to make. How do we sift the wheat from the chaff? Starting where you are. We can only make sound choices from the place we actually find ourselves, not form where we wish we were, or think we ought to be. How do we learn to be true to ourselves? Reading the signposts. Life provides us with teachers. Wisdom from outside ourselves, and wisdom from within. How do we read the signposts? Choosing for the best. How do we turn our compromises and collusions into choices that reflect the very best in us? Seeing it through. Making a decision is one thing. Implementing it is another. What if w e make mistakes? Can we change course if we get things wrong?
