You’ve lost more than you’ve gained. For these errors, vigilance is the key. To keep a clear mind, you need to constantly keep a realistic idea of your own skill level, as well as the chance you have to succeed. Be honest with yourself about failures, and, most of all, set a limit on yourself so you’ll know when to stop pursuing a dangerous or harmful goal. Be careful where your information comes from We can’t make a rational decision without accurate, thorough information. Therefore, getting good information should always be one of the first steps we take when we’re making a decision.

Second, people often treat news anchors as experts on the situation they’re reporting, forgetting that often an off-screen expert actually wrote the story they’re reading. This is known as “chauffeur knowledge,” which is dangerous because news anchors will sometimes give their personal opinions on a story, which our minds accept as expert analysis since the anchor was the one reading the story. We also need to be careful about the information that comes from the people around us. Humans have a natural tendency to follow the crowd.

Our emotions alter our daily choices Emotions are a powerful force for changing our minds, and in fact our feelings are behind the majority of the cognitive errors affecting our choices on a daily basis. While emotions are important, we risk making harmful and unwise choices when we allow them to alter our rational decision making. Most of our judgments are made on the assumption that we completely understand the choices on offer, but in fact the way our mind works actively prevents this. Rationally, we should be making decisions by weighing the benefits and risks of each option and coming to a logical understanding of what is the best choice.
