SFL Episode 53: On Control

“People have an assumption about what would happen if they don’t impose guilt and shame upon themselves.”

This week, another engaging discussion between Glenn Murphy and your friendly, neighborhood, health-and-wellness sage Howard Jacobson. This time on the subject of motivation, agency, and control. Along the way, we touch upon:

  • why humans repeatedly make bad choices

  • difficulties in decision-making under threat

  • finding our psychological blind spots

  • the fictions we tell ourselves

  • how practice builds control
