How to Decide
We will learn
- How the hindsight bias screws with our decisions
- How to better identify the obstacles that might get in our way
- When to bring out our full decision toolkit and when to act quickly
Why are decisions so hard?
We should all know by now that our time is the most valuable resource we have, so why would we willingly waste it on things that are so trivial?
Indecision is not cute. I’ll tell you what it is though… It’s annoying. It’s counterproductive and it’s a form of pain.
And there are all sorts of consequences.
We end up procrastinating so we don’t have to face the decision at all. Which then affects our self-belief because we stop trusting ourselves to keep a structure and finish things.
So today we’re going to talk about How to Decide.
Our guest is Annie Duke. She is a corporate speaker, and consultant in the decision-making space.
And she’s the author of How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices and Thinking in Bets, which is a national bestseller.
She is the co-founder of The Alliance for Decision Education, a non-profit whose mission is to improve lives by empowering students through decision skills education.
