Quiz: Are You On the Right Path?

It’s as Simple as 10-10-10

Suzy Welch, author of 10-10-10, was not just having a bad day, but lots of things were not going the way she wanted. She needed something to help her make sense of her relationship with her husband, children and her career path. She no longer felt in control of her life or the decisions she needed to make. It felt like life was dictating to her instead of the other way around.

Through her enlightenment, you can find salvation to confusing or overwhelming situations in the following three questions she calls 10-10-10.

1. What are the consequences of each of my options in 10 minutes?

2. In 10 months?

3. In 10 years?

As I read this, a light suddenly dawned for me, and I immediately put the 10-10-10 idea into practice. I was unhappy at my job and was confused if I should quit. So as I was making my way home from work, I asked myself those three questions in relation to quitting my job. Here’s what I came up with projecting myself into the future me:

In 10 minutes: I would feel relief that it was over. The hardship and anxiety I had there would be in the past.

In 10 months: I was surprised to find that I felt regret. Regret that I didn’t try a few other things to improve the situation. Also, the pain of having to find another job.

In 10 years: None of it would really matter. I saw myself in a job I enjoyed and myself happy.

But it was that 10 months that stopped me from quitting immediately. I went back to work the next day determined to see the situation differently and find ways to make my life there better.

I really liked this system and thought I would try this with a friend who was very unhappy in her relationship. She had broken up with him many times and always got back together with him. So I asked her the 10-10-10 questions about breaking up with him forever. Here’s what she learned about herself:

In 10 minutes: She felt relief that it was over.

In 10 months: She still felt good that he was out of her life. No more issues or nagging guilt. She felt free from his tangled grip and manipulations.

In 10 years: He was a distant memory and no longer a thought in her life. She had moved on and let it all go.

She surprised herself by her answers, but she had found clarity in a muddy situation. That night, she broke up with her boyfriend. Although the following months after the break up were difficult, she never wavered from her vision and she did feel happy and free.

I have continued to use this in my arsenal of tools against confusion and when I’ve chunked up. Finding clarity allowed myself and others to feel more empowered in our decisions. It also helped make the issues more tangible, and a path was carved showing the next step.

    Dear Tara:

    You have been sending me emails to me for awhile now and I’ve not responded. The reason is I don’t have a credit card. Their was no where on the emails you wrote me to explain to you or tell you I don’t have a credit card. There are alot of people that don’t have credit cards And that’s why we haven’t been able to respond to the physic’s. Please is their any other way we can pay without a credit card. You would have more client’s if you did! Please write me and let know soon as possible. Thankyou so much.

    how to apply the 10-10-10 rule to the decision of having children

    In 10 minutes: you’ll be thinking of babies and children like creatures that never become adults, comparing herself to friends who are already mothers..nothing changes much

    In 10 months: you will be questioning yourself if that was a good idea, because you have to take a baby wherever you go, there’s no sex and your partner will be questioning if there will ever be sex again

    In 10 years: probably divorced, there’s yelling all around you and you’re just thinking about the hell of the next years when your child enters her teenage years. Basically you want the next years to pass as quick as possible but oh wait! not that fast as you’re trying to find a new hubby

    need a 4th number there…

    the only path there is is the one beneath your feet…

    if you are going to change your path be it in 10 minutes 10 months or 10 years don’t forget to wear the right shoes for the new path… you cannot climb a mountain in high heels, dance the salsa in sneakers, or drive a race car in flip flops.

    excellent tool for dieters. i really needed that. thanks Holly.

    Well simple does not mean success nor does it mean failure – I find a lot of quick fixes advertised as the “way”,or a means to an end. Words are definitely cheap in this day and age. There are many different people, with many different life experiences and I am sure that – 10 10 10 would work for some and that is great. A Simple but good idea, with, I’m guessing – moderate success.

    I’m glad you find it all so simple and useful! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used from food decisions (do I really need that sumptuous treat) to life-altering decisions. I can literally feel myself through a decision! Enjoy the new tool! And thanks to Suzy Welch for introducing to my life!
