If you had to make a life-and-death decision right here, right now, could you? Surgeons do that every day, relying on a decision-making process steeped in a network of facts, education, experience, intuition, and gut instincts. But how do they know which quality to tap into and when? Turns out that the same principles that surgeons use to diagnose, decide, do, and ultimately discharge can help anyone make important decisions efficiently and productively. In Trust Your Gut: The Surgeon's Guide to Getting It Done, Dr. Tom Nicholson, Chief of General Surgery and a colorectal specialist at a Pennsylvania teaching hospital, prescribes twenty solutions that anyone can use to make good decisions in work and in life. Trust Your Gut is a concise motivational business book designed to be read in less than an hour-on the train, waiting for a plane, or anywhere and anytime the reader needs a boost of decision-making confidence. The author, also a business owner, dissects each step of how surgeons make decisions, and translates them for outside the OR, in work and in life.
