Interview with Francesca Gino: Sidetracked – Why Our Decisions Get Derailed

I’m happy to share with you my latest conversation hosted at

In this conversation I talk with Professor Francesca Gino about her latest book Sidetracked – Why Our Decisions Get Derailed and How to Stick To The Plan.

The conversation highlights three forces that derail humans from achieving their goals:

  • Forces from within (overconfidence, infectious emotions, & in-attentional blindness).
  • Forces from relationships (lack of perspective taking, social bonds, & social comparisons).
  • Forces from the outside world (irrelevant framing, subtle changes in frames, & effects of ambiance).
