Petter Stordalen in “Hooray Monday! 10 rules for a life with drive ”describes his experience of achievements, serious mistakes and correcting them.
“I’ve always been particularly interested in this area of psychology – what makes us do this and not otherwise. I will become a more successful businessman if I understand the mechanisms by which people buy something, book a hotel room, or sell their company. By understanding what compels us to act in a certain way, I not only increase my chances of success, but also reduce the likelihood of error. Too many decisions in life we make, guided by not fully realized motives.”
