It is often the case that the quality of our life is tied to the quality of our decisions. If we can learn to make better decisions, we can position ourselves to take advantage of opportunities and minimize the potential of unforced errors. On this episode, Annie Duke shares deep insight into how to make better decisions from her new book How To Decide. We discuss:
- Why good decisions might still result in bad outcomes, and vice versa.
- How to think about hindsight bias and how it affects our perception of decisions.
- Why decisions that seem bad to others might actually be good decisions for you.
- How the paradox of experience can lead to unforced errors and bad decisions.
