In this episode, Drs. Jim Loehr and Sheila Ohlsson Walker join Bradley to talk about the concepts in their new book, “Wise Decisions.” In WISE DECISIONS, the authors introduce the concept of Your Own Decision Advisor or Y.O.D.A. – the inner voice that guides people’s choices. “When the stories crafted by your inner voice are faulty or ill-conceived, the advice or decisions that emanate from those faulty interpretations will likely be flawed as well,” say Loehr and Walker. Anxiety, depression, loneliness, hopelessness, and fatigue are all capable of sabotaging a person’s Y.O.D.A. They also discussed decision-making when emotionally “hot” or not.
