324: Thinking Clearly: How to Get Better at the Small Decisions that Shape Our Lives with Shane Parrish

By November 28, 2023No Comments


Have you ever stopped to think how seemingly insignificant decisions have shaped your life? Like that coffee shop you decided to pop into on a random Tuesday and met your best friend, the one who’s been your rock through your highs and lows.

Or that book you picked up from the library that completely changed your perspective on life.

These moments and decisions are like individual threads that weave together to create the story of our lives. Each choice adds to the pattern, shaping who we are and where we go.

Every little decision we make can send us down a different path. But there’s no sense in dwelling on the paths not taken.

Instead, we can focus on getting better at making those small choices as they come. That’s where the real power lies.

So that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Shane Parrish. He is an entrepreneur, investor, and the wisdom seeker behind the popular website Farnam Street where he writes about hidden insights that help you achieve lasting success.

His online course, Decision by Design, has helped thousands of people worldwide learn the repeatable behaviors that improve decision-making in the real world.
