Part: VI Putting It Together > Mastering Your Survival Skills

Chapter 35. Mastering Your Survival Skills

As the stories in the previous chapters have illustrated, it not always easy to figure out what to do in a different situation—and there are many possible alternatives. Even if you choose what seems to be an optimal course of action at the time, you may not have all the facts or information you need; you may be hampered by faulty assumptions you can't check; you may have to choose between alternatives before you feel ready; you may be constrained by time and budget limits. Then, too, your personality and that of others you are dealing with affects what the best approach might be, as does the influence of your organizational culture, personal and organization priorities, and other factors.

The "What Should You Do?" questions in each chapter reflect this range of possibilities, and while some may be obviously wrong choices, others could be real options. Thus, while I have provided suggestions on what to do, what someone should have done, or why someone's actions were a mistake might vary in any given situation. Different people might have found a good alternative that worked well for them but might not work as well for someone else.
