Conducting a 10/10/10 analysis doesn’t presuppose that the long-term perspective is the right one. It simply ensures that short-term emotion isn’t the only voice at the table.

Jan Tißler

Shared December 18, 2016

To use 10/10/10, we think about our decisions on three different time frames:

How will we feel about it 10 minutes from now?
How about 10 months from now?
How about 10 years from now?

It’s easy to lose perspective when we’re facing a thorny dilemma. Blinded by the particulars of the situation, we’ll waffle and agonize, changing our mind from day to day.

Because sometimes, when making small or big decisions, it ain't enough to sleep over them.. It also ain't wise to allow only short term emotions to have a say in decision making.
10/10/10 is a helpful framework.

Those short-term emotions—nervousness, fear, and the dread of a negative response—were a distraction and a deterrent.

That shift can help us to keep our short-term emotions in perspective. It’s not that we should ignore our short-term emotions; often they are telling us something useful about what we want in a situation. But we should not let them be the boss of us.

Finding your emotions are causing you to be impulsive?

Read this!! It will help so much!! 10/10/10 rule a great concept, I used to use this in my relationship constantly when it came to expectations. If I cared 10 mins from now but not 10 months from now or 10 years, it probably isn't a huge deal, and I should let it go.
