Many of the answers we look for, that we think are big puzzles, actually already have solutions but have been tied up in the long, dark corridors of academia. This is what Eric Barker, the blogger behind “Barking up the Wrong Tree”, sought to change with his blog that brings science-based advice for everyone on how to achieve success and happiness. In this episode, we discuss Eric’s brand new book, Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong and some of his most interesting research-backed insights for leaders. Eric shares a powerful exercise to determine whether a goal is realistic or not, explains the science of why daydreaming saps our motivation, dishes about how to be a giver without being a doormat, and shares an actionable tip for starting each day on the right foot. This is definitely a must-hear episode so check it out, subscribe, and share!
