    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 (because I was away at a psych conference). New live show next week.


    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."


    And please ask a newspaper near you to carry my award-winning syndicated, science-based advice column...if they don't already.

    There was Charlie Hebdo, the January 7th attack by Islamic fundamentalists on the French newspaper in Paris.  Then the attacks in Copenhagen, one person was killed, and two others injured, in a shooting near a Copenhagen synagogue, just hours after a gunman with an automatic rifle opened fire on a cafe hosting a free speech event organized by a controversial Swedish artist who has faced threats for his caricatures of Muhammad.  Now we’re being warned of a possible Islamic terrorist attack on the Mall of America; but, no guns allowed there.
