What is it that makes some of us better - or worse - than others at committing to a choice? What are the forces that hold us back, and how can we successfully overcome them? Every facet of our lives depends on the decisions we make. Yet, how often do we pause to reflect on our ability to make the best and smartest choices? The key is how we confront and refine the decision making process.
Joseph Bikart explores the intricacies of decision making, challenging us to understand why we make the choices we do. He explores how the true power of decisions, especially the toughest among them, help us to face our fears and may in turn change how we think about ourselves. The book is broken into four clear parts and punctuated with short practical essays Bikart presents a lively and compelling exploration of the process of decision making covering;
Indecision, indecision - what makes us indecisive? What holds us back and why? Where Art Thou? How and where we get stuck and the importance of relaxing one's grip. The Momentum of Decisiveness - Keeping our focus and proactivity. The Deciding Mind - making our smartest choices.
Drawing from such different fields as philosophy, psychology, neurology, literature, art history and theology, we are taken on a journey from the depths of procrastination to the elation of decision making. Presenting a fresh perspective on what to do at the proverbial fork in the road, Bikart's unique philosophy is insightful, thought provoking, and potentially life-changing.
-James Hollis, Ph.D, Bestselling author of Living an Examined Life
'Joseph Bikart’s The Art of Decision Making is volatile. It shakes you by the scruff of your procrastination and wilfully wakes you from your slumber of indecision. As Eliot’s Prufrock soberly reminds us, every decision, even trouser leg style, has within it the potential to activate agony.
Navigating the complex world of how we decide or more urgently, how we avoid decision, is for many of us, a stormy sea. Bikart steers a brilliant course through these difficult waters and delivers his reader to new and clear-blue depths, encompassing the philosophy, psychology and cartography of every dimension of decision making. The best decision you will make today will be to clear your decks, inner and outer, and create space to devour this feast of wisdom. By turns erudite, creative, demanding, challenging, practical and insightful, The Art of Decision Making is blissfully relieving of the haunting tension of messy, clumsy and incompetent deciding.'
