Description: 

Almost every course you take at university claims that its content will help you to make better decisions in the context of whatever it is you are studying.  Most classess ply you with information about business, science, or the arts and assume that your newfound knowledge and expertise will lead you to make better decisions.  But, here's a question for you: Will it, really?

 

Consider this: You are the expert when it comes to your life.  You know everything there is to know about yourself: what it means to be "you", and what you want in life. Yet, you've probably made hundreds (if not thousands) of decisions over your lifetime that you thought were crummy.  Have you ever stopped to think about what made them crummy? Was it the information you used, didn't use, or failed to recognize? And then the most important question of them all: What could you have done to make your decision better?
