I finished another book. It’s called The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeurst. I have heard of her and her books for a while, but I’ve never read anything by her. I really liked this book. The thing I liked the best was her way of explaining our thought processes for decisions. She has an interesting way of thinking through decisions that I probably should follow with all of my decisions. Especially those involving my time. She calls is “chasing down” a decision. She follows it out to its logical conclusion. Whatever decision you are trying to make, think it through to the end and see what the outcome will be a month or longer out. Will you have less time to spend with your family? Is the time away going to be a productive trade out that will not lead to resentment or less present time with your family? Maybe it isn’t the right time to say yes to that decision then. She even has a kind of chart in the back with a “path” to take with your decisions. I love it! If you are struggling with time constraints and you feel stretched thin and unable to give your best self to the people and tasks around you, this is a great book for helping you re-prioritize and think through your decisions to find your best yes. Great book! 5 Stars!
