HOW TO DECIDE [this blog in books #4]

Most of the books above are fictional – in the sense that they don’t technically exist (outside of my mind or this blog).

Today, I want to share How to Decide. 

Malcolm Gladwell once mentioned that he likes stories that are ostensibly about X, but are really about Y. I've come to realise that although I spend a fair amount of time talking about money, most of the time I'm talking about decision-making.

As it turns out, I've written a lot about making decisions...

I'll be candid: some of these articles might provide a different perspective to what you've come across elsewhere. But there are some great books about decision-making available, which are probably better than anything I could write. Off the top of my head: Thinking, Fast & Slow by Daniel Kahneman, Thinking in Bets by Annie Duke, The Scout Mindset by Julia Galef, Optionality by Richard Meadows, Sources of Power by Gary Klein – and I am certain that there are amazing books that I've read in the past couple of years that I've missed out.
