The Scout Mindset with Julia Galef, Part One
In today's episode, I have the joy of interviewing Julia Galef. Julia and I talk about updating your beliefs, the difficulty of fighting our biases, seeking truth, and her new book, The Scout Mindset.
Introduce Intentional Asymmetry
Friday refill - happy Friday! We have a drive to balance everything. Move back towards the middle, maintain status quo. But usually, balance is wasteful and an illusion.
In today's episode we run a thought experiment. What happens when a story changes? Can we ever get back "on track"? History is complex. Predicting history gets more and more complex the further away we try to predict. We should be careful with our predictions.
Changing Work Environments and Availability Bias
Huge transitions are happening for most people right now. As this occurs, our environments will change. Partially as a result of the availability bias, we'll also see peoples' behaviors and thought patterns will also change. We'll talk about how this bias works in today's episode.
Friday Refill: Making Limited Work Look Good on a Resumé
How do you make work look good on your resumé when you feel like you haven't done anything impressive? Only the people who work with you know the value of what you did, so how can you communicate that in a bullet point?
Minding the Observer Effect as We Transition Together
As we transition together through strange periods (whether at large scale like the present moment, or at a smaller scale within your organization or culture), the way we look at each other changes. This observation shift brings behavior change - that's what we're talking about in today's episode.
To the point.
