  • How to Be Perfect: What Thought Leaders Don’t Want You to Know

    We’re drowning in messages from thought leaders who claim to know exactly how to optimize ourselves—and they all have the data from psychology studies to prove it. Why are we miserable when the answers seem so simple? Why are these life hacks more “hack” than “life-changing”? Part of it stems from the all-too-human hope for a quick fix. But we also need to look at the politics behind social science data, and the economics of the Self-Help Industrial Complex: biased studies, the replication crisis, privileged self-help authors, and a failure to consider context and life’s complexity.

    If these answers are allegedly proven, but don’t always work for our individual needs, how can we know what’s right for us? In this talk, I’ll offer a framework to uncover the sticking points holding you back on your unique journey.
