Everyone makes mistakes. Still, it would be nice if we could all make fewer of them. This episode begins by revealing a few simple strategies to help people make fewer errors as they attempt to accomplish a task. (Source: Joseph Hallinan author of Why We Make Mistakes https://amzn.to/39OVFrM). When you have a problem, you need a solution. And maybe the best way to find one is to change or reframe the problem. That’s according to Thomas Wedell Wedellsborg, who is author of the book What’s Your Problem? To Solve Your Toughest Problems, Change the Problems You Solve (https://amzn.to/3bUChLN) . Listen as Thomas explains how to change the problem to find a better solution. Seems like whenever you are sick with almost any illness, part of the prescription to get better is bed rest. So, what is so special about bed rest? Listen as I discuss what bed rest actually does to help you get better – and the benefits are real. https://www.wsj.com/articles/fighting-the-flu-when-you-need-to-stay-home-and-in-bed-1423504355 Of course, you like to think that you see the world through objective eyes, but it just isn’t true. Humans have very distinct biases that color your view of things, events and people. While these biases can be helpful, they can also get in the way. Listen as I discuss this with Dr. Daniel Krawczyk, professor of behavioral and brain science at the University of Texas in Dallas. He is also the co-host of the Mental Models podcast (https://www.mentalmodelspodcast.com/) and co-author of the book Understanding Behavioral Bias (https://amzn.to/2vOw3MY).
