No Consistent Method Most people in the workplace dont have a consistent method for solving problems. SO WHAT?

Procrastination Efficiency / Effectiveness Biases (Recency, Ego Depletion, and many, many more)

sources Combine similar information CT Questions to eliminate bias and redundant information Dilemma # 4 The Myth of Multitasking Multitasking may save time, but it

lowers the quality of our decision making. SOLUTION to Dilemma # 4 When engaged with problem solving or decision making, focus on a single task. Two Easy Ways Be attentive in short spans of time
