About this Decision Process
If you use this process, we'd love to hear from you. Your stories are the reason that we maintain this section of our web site. Please write to decision at ballantyne.com. Best wishes... Robert J. Ballantyne.
As part of working with clients, I have seen people face very difficult decisions. We have found the process expressed in Spencer Johnson's book, "Yes" or "No" to be very helpful. The book presents the concepts as a parable with the suggestions and recommended actions appearing on facing pages. Some time ago, as a paper exercise, I had extracted the process. That formed the basis of the material at this web site. If you find it interesting, consider buying the book. I know it will enrich your experience with this process.
Two books are referenced when I use this exercise. I recommend both.
