Changing Habits: Interview with Dr. Amy Bucher, a Behavior Change Designer


Technology ethics is the application of ethical thinking to the practical concerns of technology.

The reason technology ethics is growing in prominence is that new technologies give us more power to act, which means that we have to make choices we didn't have to make before. While in the past our actions were involuntarily constrained by our weakness, now, with so much technological power, we have to learn how to be voluntarily constrained by our judgment: our ethics.

Re-reading doesn't help

Don't just re-read your notes. When you first read, you extract a lot of information, but when you do it the second time, you read with a sense of 'I know this, I know this.'

This gives you the illusion that you know the material very well, when in fact there are gaps.

Re-reading is inefficient. Here are 8 tips for studying smarter.


We all fall prey to unforeseen risks, and are blind to them due to three reasons:

  1. The rewards(and potential rewards) obscures one's risk, as demonstrated by gamblers and stock market investors. One remedy is to ask yourself what these rewards are preventing you from seeing.
  2. Loss aversion coupled with our existing sunk costs pushes us towards taking further risk even when it is resulting in losses. One needs to analyse sunk costs on a regular basis.
  3. Future aversion, where we make decisions on the(unpredictable) future using present data. The way to address this is to act without data, understanding how the business landscape changes. It also helps to reframe ‘punishment’ for any misstep as an important learning.

3 Reasons You Underestimate Risk


Why You Self-Sabotage

These fears are based on false beliefs, such as success or failure defines my worth as a person.

We can't think faster

You can't force yourself to think faster. If you do, you'll likely make worse decisions.

There is a way to improve the quality of your decisions without resorting to hacks to speed them up.

Your Thinking Rate Is Fixed



Is the way of thinking in which you consider the opposite of what you want.

Inversion puts a spotlight on errors and roadblocks that are not obvious at first glance. What if the opposite was true? What if I focused on a different side of this situation? Instead of asking how to do something, ask how to not do it.

Taking notes requires a balance

It’s easier to take notes when we’re listening to content because our hands are free. But when reading a book, taking notes interrupts our reading flow.

There is a balance between taking too many notes - and reading too slowly- and too few notes which prevent us from capturing enough knowledge from the book.

How to take notes while reading a book


attributed to Aristotle
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”

It's about how you write. Every person has a different way of expressing themselves. We can all spot which writers are fake and which ones are real. But when we write, we forget about that. We fail to think of someone a bit sceptical.

When you write, you need to be convinced of what you write. Your biggest enemy is not the sceptic, but the reader who calls you out by simply discarding your writing.
