It’s not as hard as you think.
Human beings are actually notoriously bad at predicting what they would and wouldn’t do in future situations.
We say we’d do the right thing, but don’t consider social pressure, politics, or real-world consequences.
It’s easy to talk the talk when your amygdala is quiet and well-behaved.
So, let’s get serious.
The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.
Whether you’re evaluating a new hire or predicting the success of your new diet, the rule is the same.
It’s that simple.
Not easy, but simple.
