“Even when something’s gone wrong, you have a chance to hit reset.”: Caroline Webb at WDS

This week (Wednesday, October 12th!) we’ll release the first round of tickets for WDS 2017, a week-long gathering of creative, remarkable people—taking place next summer in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

But first, we’re rolling out a series of speaker videos from the 2016 event. Caroline Webb has an extensive background in economics, management consulting, and coaching. She’s currently the CEO of Sevenshift, a firm that shows people how to use insights from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to transform the quality of our everyday lives—at work and beyond.

Her book on that topic, How To Have A Good Day, has been published in 14 languages and 60 countries this year, and her work has been widely featured in media outlets both nationally and internationally.

Check out the video to hear her message about using behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to have a good day!

“When you see bad behavior in other people, you can remind yourself that it’s probably a good person in bad circumstances.”

“The way that we go into a situation—our starting points—really affects the way that we see the world.”

“It turns out that it is possible to imagine a world where being deliberate about your intentions for where you want to put your attention—in other words being more mindful of what’s top of mind for you when you go into any situation—can make your reality 10% better.”

“Even when something’s gone wrong, you have a chance to hit reset.”
