    Dr. Francesca Gino on how to make wise decisions and stick to them

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.


    *NOTE: "Best Of" replay. New live shows in September -- under a brand new show name we'll announce soon.


    Adorably, we humans see ourselves as rational animals. Research shows us to be anything but.


    We are swayed in ways we wouldn’t expect in both our decision-making and how well we stick to our plans. 


    The good news is, the research also shows that our going off track happens in predictable ways. My guest tonight, Harvard Business School professor, Dr. Francesca Gino, will both lay out the forces that sidetrack us as we’re trying to accomplish our goals and offer guidelines that we can use to keep ourselves on track. 


    Dr. Gino will be discussing her recently-published book, Sidetracked: Why Our Decisions Get Derailed, and How We Can Stick to the Plan. Join us tonight and have your eyes opened about the psychological, social, and environmental stumbling blocks that keep us from getting where we want to go.


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please buy my science-based but funny book about why people are rude and how to change things, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck."

    Why making Decisions based on facts are good but other’s feelings are bad

    in Religion

    So many of us live our lives with a desire to do so with compassion and sensitivity.  There is nothing wrong with that except for when it comes to making decisions or choices in your life.  We carefully plan our decisions or choices in order not to be seen as selfish, arrogant or rude toward another human being.  We carefully step in order never to offend another and in doing so, we wonder why much of our life is spent wondering why things do not work out well for us.  Our first thought is to blame God for the direction our lives may be headed and if that doesn’t work we tend to then blame anyone and everyone else because we cannot figure out how a caring, loving person, such as ourselves, could end up in so much mess.  The problem is, we fail to consider that the reason our lives are in so much of a mess is we fail to honor that simple phrase given to us by Jesus Christ himself when he says that before you attempt to help your brother remove the splinter from his eye, you must first remove the beam from your own.  We refuse to heed these words because to some, this sounds a little selfish and Lord knows we don’t want to be selfish but what if I told you that keeping to what Jesus said is not selfish as long as we prevent ourselves from crossing over into enemy territory by avoiding the excessiveness that often closely follows and an all actions.  Consider this, could evil have set this thing up so following Jesus’ words seem selfish to prevent us from ever discovering just how much more enjoyable and stress free this life could be if we followed it.  Here’s an example.

    Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!

    in Christianity

    Welcome to another show here at, "Your Place! Last weekend Wild Bill was asked to preach and so he is giving you a repeat of that message.  We all have to make decisions each and every day.  We do this until the day that we die.  But how important do we place the things that God has provided for us in making our daily decisions.  If we make a decision and it does not turn out to be a good one...Do we blame God and expect him to fix it for us? Our choices can effect our walk with God and the walk of others! Are we responsible to guard our heart, guard our mind, and guard our tongue?  Who is accountable when this is not done?  Like the judge said when a criminial was bitten by a police dog when asked who was going to pay his medical bills...the judge said the one that was bitten!!!    The scripture text is going to be Gen. 25:23-34. Before I read that to you and while you are looking it up.  We want to remind you that you can download any of our shows for free to any smart device.  As always we will open up the microphones at the end of the show for your comments and questions. Just push the number 1 on your phone and you will be identified by the last four digits of your phone number.  Now, lets read the scriptures.

    Making Common Sense Voter Decisions

    in Podcasting

    Does drama elect candidates who can serve the country? State and Local Governments? Will money choose elected officials? Or will each citizen vote their concious? The apparent levels of frustration experience due to more attentions paid to Wall Street and their Lobbyist has meant the average citizen for decades has been forgotten.  


    Will Koch Brother money, Trump Celebrity driven campaign, Hillary Clinton becoming first women President, or Bernie Sanders speaking out for the common person make it to the electorial finish line?


    Have any candidates running for the Presidency address issue important to you? Where do they stand on Insured Civil Rights Legislation? Will they support a Bill which protect Insurance Policyholders? Or will they stand silent as Wall Street continues to delay and deny benefits to Insured who've paid premiums to these corporations?


    Join ESTRA today in a discussion on why candidates spend more time on issues of Wall Street than those of Main Street.
