The range of choices we face every day seems to grow exponentially, as does the accompanying stress. Can we learn to choose well? How can we choose wisely?

Wise Choices seeks to make the process of decision making less stressful, more focused and more fruitful. It uses a few simple tools that combine the wisdom of ancient spiritual traditions with the common sense of the twenty-first century, addressing questions such as:

  • How do we decide which choices to focus on?
  • How do we learn to be true to ourselves?
  • How do we implement our choices?
  • And can we change course if we get things wrong?

Using short pieces of text and offering suggestions, not rules, Margaret Silf encourages us to trust the processes of our own heart and mind to make wise choices.
