What were you thinking when you took that new job? Rom Brafman author of SWAY

I hope you are have had a great weekend relaxing and connecting with the people that you care about. Have you every made a career decision only to look back on it and ask yourself, “What was I thinking?”. What influenced your choice? Was it a great teacher, close family member, friends, the media or Google? This week’s podcast is with Rom Brafman Ph.D, co-author of New York Times best selling book SWAYThe Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior. Clients themselves, are often surprised when they look back on what influenced them to choose a particular career path.

 

We all live in the same economy, why is it that similar qualified professionals end up with completely different outcomes? Rom investigated the role our behavior plays in decision making. He shared, “The fact is, all of us are swayed at times by factors that have nothing to do with logic or reason.” We live in a time when there are more choices, more competition and the rate of change is increasing. It is hard for any of us to predict the future. The most successful people I know, seek out the best advice from most experienced and trusted experts, especially when it comes to major decisions like health, finances and their career. Information has never been cheaper, and wisdom more valuable.
