Annie Duke is an author, speaker, and consultant in the decision-making space. She was awarded a National Science Foundation Fellowship to study Cognitive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, and—when she was close to completing her Ph.D.—put that on hold to become a poker professional. Annie won more than $4 million dollars in tournaments before retiring from poker almost ten years ago. Now the co-founder of The Alliance for Decision Education, Annie joins the show for a second time to share insights from her new book, How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices.

Listen in as she explains why the decision-making process does not have to be fraught with anxiety and self-doubt, but rather that it’s a skill we can all learn. You'll discover why we often get stuck in decision-making, as well as how we can overcome the second-guessing and analysis paralysis that often plagues the process so we can make better choices with more ease and confidence.
