Big or small, decisions aren't as easy as they may seem.
Psychologists have found decision-making is fraught with hidden influences, tricky nuances, and the ability to make us happy in the short-term but unhappy in the long-term.
Some of my greatest insights into this aspect of human behavior have come from TED talks, which break down research findings into their most digestible form.
Here are the talks that have changed how I make decisions.
"How to make hard choices"
"Grit: The power of passion and perseverance"
"The paradox of choice"
"Are we in control of our own decisions?"
"The surprising habits of original thinkers"
"The riddle of experience vs. memory"
