  • Widen your options
    • Narrow framing leads us to overlook options 
      • avoid “whether or not” decisions
      • find more options
    • Who has already solved your problem?
      • look for current bright spots (local) 
      • best practices (regional) 
      • analogies from related domains (distant)
  • Reality‐test your assumptions
    • confirmation bias: skewed, self-serving information
    • To combat that bias, we can: 
      • ask dis-confirming questions
      • zoom out and 
      • zoom in 
      • conduct small experiments
  • Attain distance before deciding
    • Short-term emotion tempts us to make choices that are bad in the long term
    • What would I tell my best friend? 
    • What would my successor do?
    • Clarify our core priorities, and go on the offensive for them
  • Prepare to be wrong
    • We are typically overconfident
    • should prepare for bad outcomes, 
    • as well as good ones 
    • set up "tripwires": trigger conditions to get our attention (M&M, Zappos $1000)
