Decisions includes a foreword from Steve Forbes and afterword by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum.
Sorting out our lives amidst chaos, confusion, and innumerable options is a process we all have in common. The decisions we ultimately make can affect our lives and the lives of others. It’s not always easy. In this empowering guide, business strategy expert Robert L. Dilenschneider shares the choices of notable, visionary decision-makers—from Harry Truman and Henry Ford to Marie Curie and Malala Yousafzai—and explains how you can apply their principles to your own personal and professional real-life scenarios.
Resolve, patience, and practical thinking—take it from these politicians, scientists, economists, inventors, entrepreneurs, theologians, activists, and commanders of war and peace. Their inspiring counsel will give you the tools you need to help change your life. Both big and small, your choices can shape the minutes, days, weeks, and years ahead. This book is the first motivating step in the right direction.
This is a very informative and thoughtful book. Mr. Dilenschneider focuses on different prominent figures in history like Harry Truman, Margaret Thatcher, Joan of Arc, Henry Ford, Abraham Lincoln, Malala Yousafzai to name a few.
Mr. Dilenschneider breaks down this book into four different sections: War and Peace, Commerce and Invention, Science, and Breaking Boundaries. Mr. Dilenschneider shares what each figure was known for but what you may not have thought about was what made each person so famous. It was the decisions that they made.
There is so much information in this book but it is so easy to understand. It made me think more about the information I was reading in this book. Readers can take this information in this book and apply it to every day life to make more thoughtful decisions.
