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.
