We begin a new teaching arc – Smart People, Dumb Choices – that explores the choices we make and why we fail to choose wisely, especially when we know better.
Today Tim gives the introduction for the series and covers the basic categories of dumb choices.
Here is a list of some our sources for this series:
- “Why Smart People Make Dumb Choices” by Deborah Smith Pegues and Ricky Temple
- “Blind Spots: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things” by Madeleine L. Van Hecke
- “Blunder: Why Smart People Make Bad Decisions” by Zachary Shore
- “The Stress Effect: Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions–And What to Do About It” by Henry L. Thompson
- “Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior” by Ori & Rom Brafman
- “Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions” by Dan Ariely
We don’t necessarily recommend any of these sources, but we are drawing some information and illustrations from each of these. Scripture remains as our primary source.
