A Decision Making Primer

G. Claude Wright

If you often find yourself unraveling messes your poor choices have created, this book is a must read. Speaking to a wide variety of decision-making situations, its seventy seven principles provide the template for what a good decision-maker looks like. As you become aware of the multifaceted nature of some of these concepts, you'll find they apply to an even greater number of circumstances than you might have imagined.

Many of the lessons stress the reality that poor decisions bear consequences-and a few of the principles will open your eyes to the presence of subtle, but important nuances that might otherwise escape your notice. These, alone are worth the price of the book. My hope is that this book will wean you from the habit of second guessing yourself and transform you into a competent decision-maker.

Mr. Wright's keen ear for telling a good story and his passion for ferreting out excellence will transport you from the everyday to the sublime. Ignore the lessons taken from the stories of his and others' real life experiences and you will have missed an opportunity to sharpen your decision-making skills. Learn from Mr. Wright and you'll avoid more of life's problems, hurdles, and unexpected setbacks.

In different situations, we all make mistakes...poor choices, but do we all learn from our mistakes, to make better choices? It takes a unique individual with the right combination of curiosity, personal integrity, and analytical skill to distill from a given situation the essential principals at work. Gary is such an individual. A successful businessman, he has dug through numerous business situations to unearth rich nuggets of truth regarding decision-making. I call his book a HANDBOOK FOR WISE CHOICES.
