Decision Making
Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Working within a role where you are guiding UX teams down recommended paths can be stressful. In DesignOps, you are often confronted daily on decisions and problem solving. This book has helped me to be more intentional and prescriptive about the choices I am making not only for the teams I’m working with, but for myself and my own career path. I recommend this book to anyone in DesignOps who is struggling with making decisions and finding it difficult to stop to think and reflect. The book has been very influential in my personal journey towards happiness and fulfillment.
