“You make me every single day. Some days you are unaware that I even exist, but I still get made. There are times when I am short and simple; at other times, I am a bit more drawn out and difficult. Sometimes there is pressure to make me in the midst of chaos; at other times, you get to make me in times of happiness and joy. I have the power to either land you in jail or give you ultimate victory. By doing nothing at all, you have still made me. Really, I am made at the end of a road that forks and runs off into two directions. Who am I? I am choice! Welcome to this book about choices. Whether you picked this book up at the bookstore because it looked interesting or someone you know gave it to you, I believe there is a lot for you to take away from here. I have been speaking at events and talking about choices for several years now and it is still something that drives me every day.

You only live once, but if you live it right, once is enough. Live your life in such a way as to make a difference in this world. Are you tired of living a certain way and want to change?

You Are What You Choose

The Habits of Mind That Really Determine How We Make Decisions

The hidden patterns behind the way we make decisions Several recent books, from Blink to Freakonomics to Predictably Irrational, have examined how people make choices. But none explain why different people have such different styles of decision making—and why those styles seem consistent across many contexts. For instance, why is a gambler always a gambler, whether at work, on the highway, or in a voting booth? Scott de Marchi and James T. Hamilton present a new theory about how we decide, based on an extensive survey of more than thirty thousand subjects. They show that each of us possesses six core traits that shape every decision, from what to have for lunch to where to invest. We go with “the usual” way of deciding whenever there’s a trade-off between current and future happiness, when facing the risk of a bad outcome, or when a choice might hurt other people. We’re also consistent about how much information we want and how much we care about the opinions of others. Readers can determine their own decision-making profile with a test in the book. Once they understand the six core traits, they’ll have a big advantage in their marketing campaigns, management strategies, investments, and many other contexts.
