“Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics, turns economics (no thanks) into behavioral economics (yes, please)—an exploration of quirky human functioning and how we can be better at pretty much everything.
“This series of episodes about self-improvement is full of surprising ways to be more productive, resilient, and successful. Dubner and his guests deliver data, anecdotes, skepticism, and humor.”
This podcast taught me that habits are key to accomplishing goals. It helped me set SMART goals: specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound. Fun?
Inspirational. From spelling bee champions to board game enthusiasts, elderly basketball players to Danish pop stars—these folks all had grit, setting small goals to establish effective habits and achieve their dreams.
Stress, anxiety, and I have decided to take time apart, thanks to Freakonomics Radio. Now I’m writing to-do notes on my iPhone and being more mindful about tasks.
