In today’s episode we focus on being thorough and the pursuit of excellent! Being thorough is not perfectionism; it is paying attention to details. Not caring enough about what we do is also mediocrity from another point of view. Care enough about what you do, that it moves you to take steps to become thorough. Not all Habits are exciting when they are started, but you could gamify the process and make it easier to start and maintain good habits. In our pursuit of excellence there is no vanishing point, we can always get better.

Game theory is a mathematical approach to studying decision making that can help explain and address social problems. It tends to focus, most often, on the choice between competition and cooperation. Since games often reflect or share characteristics with real situations -- especially competitive or cooperative situations - they can suggest strategies for dealing with such circumstances. Just as we may be able to understand the strategy of players in a particular game, we may also be able to predict how people, political factions, or states will behave in a given real situation. In today’s episode we explore game theory for self-preservation, career advancement and the common good. Do listen, share with a friend and have an Amazing Week!

Failing to consider second- and third-order consequences is the cause of a lot of painfully bad decisions, and it is especially deadly when the first inferior option confirms your own biases. Never seize on the first available option, no matter how good it seems, before you’ve asked questions and explored. - Ray Dalio Today we will be focusing on Second Order thinking for Creatives. First order thinking is the process of considering the intended and perhaps obvious implications of a decision.  Second Order Thinking is a critical practice for making effective policy, business and personal decisions. All actions have effects, think about the consequences that may arise from your actions. Do listen, share with a friend and have an Amazing Week!

Today we focus on Becoming Technology Tool Agnostic.
