Description
"Few things will change your trajectory in life or business as much as learning to make effective decisions. Yet few of us recognize opportunities to decide in the first place. The moments that matter do not always announce themselves. No one pulls you aside and says, slow down and think, you are about to do something stupid. And yet the decisions we make in these moments move us closer or further away from the results we ultimately seek--love, belonging, success, wealth. According to Farnam Street founder Shane Parrish, we must get better at recognizing these moments and using them to achieve the life we want. Clear Thinking gives you the tools to identify these moments and reshape how you navigate the critical space between stimulus and response. As Parrish shows, we may imagine we are the protagonists in the story of our lives. But the sad truth is, most of us run on autopilot. Our behavioural defaults, groomed by biology, evolution, and culture, are primed to run the show for us if we don't intervene. At our worst, we react to events without reasoning, not even realizing that we're making a decision at all. At our best, we recognize these deciding moments for what they are, and apply the full capacity of our reasoning and rationality to them. Through stories, mental models, and more, Parrish offers the missing link between behavioural science and real-life outcomes. The result is a must-have manual for optimizing decision-making, gaining competitive advantage, and living a more intentional life."--,Provided by publisher.
