Long Term Thinking w/ Michael Motta- ABR011

Michael Motta is a professor of political science that studies path dependency. Path dependency is a way of stepping back and looking at how the choices you make today will play out in the long run.

In this episode we cover:

  • What decisions restrict future options.
  • How to find balance between ‘too loose’ and ‘too tight’ in your personal productivity system.
  • How to stack goals for synergy.
  • When to check in with yourself to avoid drift on your goals.


If you are not working toward your own goals, you are working to someone else's. Click To Tweet
