In this episode of It's Not What It Seems with Doug Vigliotti, you'll hear about The Outcome Fallacy—a societal belief that outcomes are more important than processes. Chances are, when we think about what will make us most happy, we think first of winning, promotions, or a big million dollar check. But when we think about what it is that helps us make better decisions, appreciate our lives more, and keep opening our minds to new ideas and ways of living, the Outcome Fallacy deceives us. This episode is about processes, and the four key mindset shifts that will help you fight back against the Outcome Fallacy, adopt better processes instead of chasing outcomes, and hold true to what really matters.
