Making Decisions--Adding Rationality

One of my Saturday rituals is buying the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal and settling on the couch to go through it page by page. I think the weekend edition of the WSJ rivals the New York Times in juicy content and great practical information.

This week I found some great practical advice in the "Ask Ariely" column written by Dan Ariely. A reader asks how to inject more rationality into decision making and as I read this I thought, "This is for recovering people." It's true. As you know we are often a bit behind in skills we should have learned earlier in life, and we have lots of decisions to make as our recovery--and our lives--progress. So what could be more helpful, right?

His advice on decision making is the second question in this week's column--but you may also find his advice about commuting helpful too.

Here's the link to the article in yesterday's Wall Street Journal:
