The way to identify your prioritization (thereby restoring your family’s sanity) is to use these three questions:
1. What makes your family unique?
2. What is your family's top priority - rallying cry - right now?
3. How will you use the answers? And how will you keep the answers alive?
It is a lens for decision-making. If you’re clear on your answer to these three questions, then decision-making from the small (should we sign our child up for a second soccer team?) to large (should we relocate?) becomes clear.
The book reads like a story - it doesn't feel like the infinitely practical book that it is.
It really helped us lay a foundation of how we would make decisions for our family. It lays out a great framework for how to prioritize everything in your life.
I heard about it on the Dave Ramsey show, and I am so very glad I bought it.

The book encourages you to ask 3 questions:
1. What makes your family unique
2. What is your family's top priority right now?
3. How do you talk about and use the answers to these questions?
Rather than posting a review straightaway over an enjoyable and easy to read book I left it a couple of weeks to see how easy it was for Hannah and I to implement. In the end we took two sessions to write out the answers to the above questions, and some of the micro questions. Lencioni's writing was helpful and highly adaptable for our family context and we're hoping to see real progress with our top priority. I'll write again on this in a few weeks time to let you know how it's going.
