While on our way back home from my family’s regular Friday night out, we passed by our favorite bookstore (because it’s the only big bookstore in our place) to check out some new books and learning materials for our 5-year old daughter.
We went straight to the stationery station to buy some pens and watercolor for the arts session of our child. My wife also grabbed an interactive-type Japanese conversational lessons kit. But before we even left the shelves, I chanced upon a small black book that looked very familiar to me.
I usually don’t spend on new books compulsively. But this particular book surprised me as I have been wanting to score a copy of this since last year. Good thing it’s in our bookstore now!
This book is very timely as I have been challenged lately by so many distractions and good problems in our organization, Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy, as well as in my current employer and my small businesses.
One of our current projects at Angat Pilipinas is the Financial Literacy Awards which is happening on April 16 at the SMX Aura. The tasks and challenges are very tough as I have to manage my teams and committees while I am outside the Philippines.
To make things more taxing, Angat’s next lead volunteer is also on vacation. That leaves our other committee heads to work “on their own” while the group’s President and Chairman are physically away from them. But of course, we are both present virtually via the internet on a daily basis.
Going back to our newly-purchased book entitled “The Decision Book: Fifty Models for Strategic Thinking”, I was able to find answers immediately to my struggling questions.
These may also help you decide right away if you are going through some difficulat situations in your workplace or in your missions and advocacies.
How To Interpret the Results
- Reject projects if there is nothing new you can learn from them and if they do not correspond to your overriding vision.
- Projects that you can learn from but do not correspond to your vision are interesting but will not help you achieve your objective. Try to change the project so that it serves your vision.
- If a project corresponds to your vision, but you are learning nothing new, look for somebody else to do it for you.
- If you are learning something and achieving your vision, you have hit the jackpot!
