Few things will change your trajectory in life  or business as much as learning to think clearly. Yet few of us  recognize opportunities to think in the first place.

You  might believe you’re thinking clearly in the moments that matter most.  But in all likelihood, when the pressure is on, you won’t be thinking at  all. And your subsequent actions will inevitably move you further from  the results you ultimately seek—love, belonging, success, wealth,  victory. According to Farnam Street founder Shane Parrish, we must get  better at recognizing these opportunities for what they are, and  deploying our cognitive ability in order to achieve the life we want.

Clear Thinking gives you the tools to recognize the moments that have the potential to  transform your trajectory, and reshape how you navigate the critical  space between stimulus and response. As Parrish shows, we may imagine we  are the protagonists in the story of our lives. But the sad truth is,  most of us run on autopilot. Our behavioral defaults, groomed by  biology, evolution, and culture, are primed to run the show for us if we  don’t intervene. At our worst, we react to events without reasoning,  not even realizing that we’ve missed an opportunity to think at all. At  our best, we recognize these moments for what they are, and apply the  full capacity of our reasoning and rationality to them.

Through  stories, mental models, and more, Parrish offers the missing link  between behavioral science and real-life outcomes. The result is a  must-have manual for optimizing decision-making, gaining competitive  advantage, and living a more intentional life.
