Why We Make Bad Decisions / by Anne Kreamer

In 2005, Daniel Gilbert, professor of psychology at Harvard and the author of Stumbling on Happinessdelivered this TED talk on why we make bad decisions.   Economic instability, employer churn, and the permanent state of uncertainty clouding the workplace, make the issues Gilbert explores even more relevant today.  As Daniel Kahneman, the Nobel Prize winning author of Thinking, Fast and Slow put it another way, "nothing in life is as important as you think it is when you are thinking about it."
