Think Twice by Michael J. Mauboussin Pdf

No matter your field, industry, or specialty, as a leader you make a series of crucial decisions every single day. And the harsh truth is that the majority of decisions—no matter how good the intentions behind them—are mismanaged, resulting in a huge toll on organizations, the people they employ, and even the people they serve. So why is it so hard to make sound decisions? In Think Twice, now in paperback, Michael Mauboussin argues that we often fall victim to simplified mental routines that prevent us from coping with the complex realities inherent in important judgment calls. Yet these cognitive errors are preventable. In this engaging book, Mauboussin shows us how to recognize and avoid common mental missteps. These include misunderstanding cause-and-effect linkages, not considering enough alternative possibilities in making a decision, and relying too much on experts. Through vivid stories, the author presents memorable rules for avoiding each error and explains how to recognize when you should “think twice”—questioning your reasoning and adopting decision-making strategies that are far more effective, even if they seem counterintuitive. Armed with this awareness, you'll soon begin making sounder judgment calls that benefit (rather than hurt) your organization.

Think Twice by Sarah Mlynowski Pdf

From the bestselling author of Don’t Even Think About It, these high school seniors may know each other’s thoughts, but they’ll never see what’s coming. Since refusing to take the antidote after acquiring flu shot–induced telepathy two years ago, the twenty Espies (that’s people with ESP to you norms) have been kept together in one class every single day. Now that they’re seniors, their separation is looming . . . Though their superpower has come with a price—headaches, constant noise, purple-tinted eyes, C-list celebrity status—Mackenzie Feldman, Olivia Byrne, Cooper Miller, Pi Ricci, and the others wouldn’t change a thing. They’ve all gotten closer than ever, and when—one-by-one—they start losing their telepathic abilities, they’ll do whatever it takes to stop the damage. Graduation is coming up, and if the Espies are going out, they may as well go out with a bang. Praise for Don’t Even Think About It “A tour-de-force comic narration that will leave you gasping in awe—if you ever catch your breath from laughing.” —E. Lockhart, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of We Were Liars “Funny, realistic, heartfelt, satiric, and unpredictable.” —Ned Vizzini, New York Times–bestselling author of It’s Kind of a Funny Story “Smart and frequently hilarious . . . Filled with heartbreak, hilarity, and some brutal truths, Mlynowski’s novel will leave readers thinking about the gaps between our private and public selves and the lies we tell others and ourselves.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Hilarious, moving, and utterly ingenious.” —Robin Wasserman, author of Girls on Fire “A solid, comical sci-fi romp.” —Kirkus Reviews

Don't Think Twice by Barbara Schoichet Pdf

A late-in-life coming-of-age escapade told with humor and heart, Don’t Think Twice is a moving and irreverent account of grief, growing up, and the healing power of adventure. Within six months, Barbara Schoichet lost everything: her job, her girlfriend of six years, and her mother to pancreatic cancer. Her life stripped bare, and armed with nothing but a death wish and a ton of attitude, Barbara pursues an unlikely method of coping. At the age of fifty she earns her motorcycle license, buys a Harley on eBay from two guys named Dave, and drives it alone from New York to Los Angeles on a circuitous trek loosely guided by her H.O.G. tour book and a whole lot of road whimsy. On the open highway—where she daily takes her speed to a hundred—Barbara battles physical limitations and inner demons on a journey that flows through the majestic Appalachian Mountains, the enchanting Turquoise Trail, and all along America’s iconic Route 66. She is awed by the battlefields in Gettysburg, stunned by the decadence of Graceland, and amused by a Cadillac graveyard in the middle of nowhere. She meets kind strangers, odd strangers, and a guy who pulls a gun on her for cutting him off. She is vulnerable but sassy, broken but determined to heal . . . or die trying.

Think Again by Adam Grant Pdf

#1 New York Times Bestseller “THIS. This is the right book for right now. Yes, learning requires focus. But, unlearning and relearning requires much more—it requires choosing courage over comfort. In Think Again, Adam Grant weaves together research and storytelling to help us build the intellectual and emotional muscle we need to stay curious enough about the world to actually change it. I’ve never felt so hopeful about what I don’t know.” —Brené Brown, Ph.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Potential, Originals, and Give and Take examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people's minds, which can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world, there's another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn. In our daily lives, too many of us favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. We listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn. We surround ourselves with people who agree with our conclusions, when we should be gravitating toward those who challenge our thought process. The result is that our beliefs get brittle long before our bones. We think too much like preachers defending our sacred beliefs, prosecutors proving the other side wrong, and politicians campaigning for approval--and too little like scientists searching for truth. Intelligence is no cure, and it can even be a curse: being good at thinking can make us worse at rethinking. The brighter we are, the blinder to our own limitations we can become. Organizational psychologist Adam Grant is an expert on opening other people's minds--and our own. As Wharton's top-rated professor and the bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, he makes it one of his guiding principles to argue like he's right but listen like he's wrong. With bold ideas and rigorous evidence, he investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, bring nuance to charged conversations, and build schools, workplaces, and communities of lifelong learners. You'll learn how an international debate champion wins arguments, a Black musician persuades white supremacists to abandon hate, a vaccine whisperer convinces concerned parents to immunize their children, and Adam has coaxed Yankees fans to root for the Red Sox. Think Again reveals that we don't have to believe everything we think or internalize everything we feel. It's an invitation to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don't know is wisdom.

Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski Pdf

A “funny, realistic, heartfelt, satiric, and unpredictable” novel about a group of big-city teens with mind-blowing powers (Ned Vizzini, New York Times–bestselling author). It was just an ordinary day at Manhattan’s Bloomberg High School. Socially awkward Olivia Byrne was stressing about her upcoming speech in public speaking class. Cooper Miller was flying high over the Yankees’ win from the night before. Mackenzie Feldman, Cooper’s girlfriend, was dreading the class’s upcoming flu vaccines because of her overwhelming fear of needles. Little did Mackenzie know that the shot would be the least of her worries . . . Now—after getting immunized—most of the students in homeroom 10B have the power to hear everyone’s thoughts: catty remarks, who’s crushing on whom, and what their teachers and parents really think about them. Once the students figure out what’s going on, the question becomes: What do they do with their new superpower? Use it for good . . . or for evil? Because world domination is on the menu . . . “A tour-de-force comic narration that will leave you gasping in awe—if you ever catch your breath from laughing.” —E. Lockhart, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of We Were Liars “Smart and frequently hilarious . . .
