Description

Will starting a business make you rich?
Is getting up at 5 AM every morning the key to success?
Does money make people happy?
Life is full of questions and answering these questions is often key to getting what we want.
If we arrive at the wrong answers, we fail to get what we want.
If we arrive at the right answers, success is within our grasp.
Learn the strategies that scientists use to identify the right answers and use these strategies to make better life decisions.
What will you be able to DO after this course?
•FORMULATE a question: will X get you Y?
•IDENTIFY relevant evidence and INTERPRET it correctly.
•AVOID reasoning fallacies that almost everybody falls prey to.
•ELIMINATE alternative explanations systematically until you uncover the truth.
•GATHER evidence yourself when no other evidence is available.
•DRAW conclusions with scientific precision.
After this course, you will have a complete blueprint with simple step-by-step instructions for making solid evidence-based decisions in every area of your life.
My first science classes shattered my world.
Afterwards, I saw reasoning errors everywhere.
Things I had believed for a long time turned out to be false.
Other things that I had rejected suddenly made a lot more sense.
It was shocking at times but also incredibly fascinating.
I enjoyed that everything became much clearer to me…
… and I started to feel a lot more confident in my opinions and decisions.
What I love about scientific thinking is that you can apply it everywhere.
Whether you want to be happier, more successful, wealthier, more productive, focussed, … in all of these areas, scientific thinking can help to discard ineffective strategies and identify what truly works.
However…
This course is for thoughtful decision-makers.
If you prefer to make fast spontaneous decisions, you will not like this course.
If you do not like doing some detective work to uncover the truth, you will not like this course.
This course is for you if…
•you want to ensure that your beliefs and decisions are correct
•you want to avoid the mistakes that most people make
•you are willing to put in the extra effort that most people skip
How does this course work?
Science classes usually involve years of intensive training.
However, you do not need years of training to reap most of its benefits.
This course is designed to provide you with 80% of the benefits for 1% of the effort.
You do not need to learn any equations, measurement theory, or anything like that.
Instead, you can master the key principles in only a few lectures.
Once you click on the red enroll button, the lectures will guide you through the material in easily digestible steps.
At the end of the course, you will have a complete step-by-step blueprint that you can use to make better decisions in every area of your life.
I will also walk you through a case study so that you can practice your new skills.
Also, you can ask me questions anytime and can have my full support when you apply the blueprint to your own cases.
