    Hypocrites: How to Survive in a World that’s Full of Them-Nir&Far

    Hypocrites: How to Survive in a World that’s Full of Them-Nir&Far

    I once worked with a person we’ll call “Dick.” Dick always told me he’d get things back to me “today or tomorrow,” but he seldom did.

    Dick didn’t have to tell me he’d get things to me that soon. He could have said, “next week” or “as soon as I can,” and I would have been fine with that. Instead, Dick had a habit of promising to deliver by a certain date, but he wouldn’t follow through.

    Here’s My Review of The Social Dilemma: No, Social Media Is Not “Hijacking” Your Brain-Nir&Far

    Here’s My Review of The Social Dilemma: No, Social Media Is Not “Hijacking” Your Brain-Nir&Far

    Over the past few weeks, people have asked me for my review of the Netflix documentary, The Social Dilemma. It’s no surprise. One of the film’s central themes is that social media is like an addictive drug, and I wrote the book on habit-forming technologies: Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products. I also have a personal connection to the film.

    In August of 2018, I sat with the filmmakers for a three-hour interview. We discussed everything from the subject matter of Hooked and my second book, Indistractable, to the ethics of social-media use and how we can learn to live with the digital tools that pervade our lives. I was glad to share my perspective; it was a rich and engaging discussion.

    Be a Schedule Builder, Not a To-Do List Maker-Nir&Far

    Be a Schedule Builder, Not a To-Do List Maker-Nir&Far

    Imagine you bought a new phone, but at the end of each day, every day, the operating system crashed. Would you keep using the faulty phone? Of course not. You’d take it back to the store, complain, and get a new one.

    And yet, many people run their entire lives on a faulty operating system. It’s called the to-do list. Have you ever met someone who runs their day using a to-do list and actually finishes everything they said they’d do? Me neither.

    Hindsight Bias: Why You Make Terrible Life Choices-Nir&Far

    Hindsight Bias: Why You Make Terrible Life Choices-Nir&Far

    Hindsight bias occurs when people feel that they “knew it all along” – when they believe that an event is more predictable after it becomes known than it was before it became known2.

    In other words, when we’re looking back at an event after it already happened, knowing that outcome influences our perception of the events leading up to it.
