This is the secret to making better decisions

1068 reads

Hey, Hubspot and I just released two new episodes of the 1-3-20 Podcast.

As you might recall, the podcast's name describes its format. In each episode I talk to the author of 1 book. I ask her 3 key questions (What’s the big idea? Why should I care? What should I do?). And we get it all done, delivering you big ideas and smart takeaways, in less than 20 minutes. 1-3-20.

In one new episode, I interview Annie Duke, a psychology-grad-student-turned-professional-poker-champion about her book, Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts. Annie offers some shrewd guidance on outsmarting not just your opponents but also your own bad habits.

In the other show, I examine the universal but under-explored emotion of awkwardness. Melissa Dahl —author of Cringeworthy: A Theory of Awkwardness and a very funny guest — explains how we can both quiet and channel the awkward dork who lives inside of all of us.

How Personas Change Sourcing Outcomes
