Overview

Decision skills are central to leading a productive life. The tag line for the Decision Education Foundation says it well: Better Decisions - Better Lives.
Like most children, my granddaughters (then four and six) knew about Goldilocks. When I asked them "Was Goldilocks a good little girl?" they thought for a moment and responded in unison "Oh no! She shouldn't have gone into the bears' house." That opened up a learning opportunity. First, we discussed what decisions Goldilocks made, then how we can make good decisions. And that led to this book.
The story provides the opportunity to teach four primary lessons:
1. I need to own my decisions. That takes awareness and courage. It also leads to taking responsibility for decisions and actions.
2. To make a decision consciously, I have to stop and think before I act.
3. A good decision has to make sense and feel right to me.
4. And, once I decide, I have to really do it - or it will only be an intention - not a real decision.
These four lessons are the foundation for building our conscious decision power for a successful life.
