Squared Away

A mystery selection of behavioural insights delivered to your inbox

I got a new laptop in the Black Friday sales and in the process of switching over, I discovered that I have over 2000 scientific articles saved in various folders and external drives.

That’s right: 2000.

I wish I could say I’ve read all of them but I haven’t – I just have a slight knowledge hoarding issue which expresses itself in a laptop full of academic papers, an expensive Kindle account and heaving bookshelves.

I typically look for one paper online and accidentally download 10, because they all looked interesting and might be useful one day – it just happens that one day never arrives because reading that particular article wasn’t urgent.

I really WANTED to read them, but… intentions are difficult to implement. To bridge the gap to action, we often need various decision crutches and support systems. In my case, I realised needed a bit more than a crutch – more like the ratchet of a public commitment.

So, in January I launched a newsletter summarises behavioural insights from papers or book chapters - some issues have a theme, others vary like a box of Christmas chocolates. 

Join me as I plough through my backlog of behavioural science research!

The Small Print:

Newsletters will contain 3-5 summaries and occasionally a couple of links to good online articles or a blog post from me at the end of the email. Main focus is on the research summaries. I'll keep your email safe - and you can opt out anytime, but I'm hoping the content will keep you hooked!
