A Smarter You In 15 Minutes… What is your time worth?
Daniel Kahneman, psychologist and Nobel Prize winner, is the author of the fascinating book “Thinking, Fast and Slow” In general, when we make decisions, be it personally or professionally, all of us utilize two basic thinking systems for problem solving, and the importance of utilizing the right system. This book is all about two basic thinking systems. The first system is Fast Thinking and the second system is Slow Thinking.
In short, Fast Thinking is what our “gut” tells us what we should do. It is intuitive, emotional, and done with little thought or effort. Slow thinking is slow, deliberate, and logical. It usually takes more time, often includes numerical or factual information that our brain needs to process and is void of emotion. Kahneman expresses the importance of making it a habit to train our brains into using the right way of “thinking” as we make decisions, as utilizing the wrong thinking system can lead to poor or even disastrous consequences.
Kahneman, through intensive behavioral study, has determined that people are more successful if they can lean on the Slow Thinking method. Kahneman teaches his proven theory simply, and includes a plan of action for learning to train the brain to use the correct “thinking” system. This novel takes a fascinating look at behaviors that can change our lives - personally, professionally, and financially. It is a book you should read to improve and utilize your thinking system the right way.
