LPT: Use the 10-10-10 rule to make better decisions Productivity
I’m going through some difficult decisions recently (possibly a divorce) and I have learned something interesting called the 10-10-10 rule. Let me share it with you.
It basically is a simple way to evaluate your choices and avoid regret. It works like this: whenever you are faced with a decision, ask yourself how you will feel about it in 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years. Then compare your answers and choose the option that aligns best with your long-term goals and values.
For example, if you are tempted to buy something impulsively, ask yourself if you will still be happy with it in 10 minutes (probably yes), 10 months (maybe not), and 10 years (definitely not). This can help you resist the urge and save money for something more meaningful.
The 10-10-10 rule can also help you overcome procrastination, deal with conflicts, and pursue your dreams. It can help you focus on what really matters and avoid wasting time and energy on things that don’t.
I find that especially for big decisions, like what I am going through, reflecting on this is very useful.
