Podcast Discussion: Annie Duke Thinks You Should Quit
Former professional poker player Annie Duke has a new book on Steve’s favorite subject: quitting. They talk about why quitting is so hard, how to do it sooner, and why we feel shame when we do something that’s good for us.
From the host, Steve D. Levitt:
"In her latest book entitled Quit: The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away, Annie tackles one of my favorite subjects: quitting. All sorts of systematic biases have been laid bare by the field of behavioral economics. But in my opinion, not quitting soon enough is the most costly mistake people are making in their everyday lives. But I haven’t had much success in convincing people that’s the case. Hopefully, Annie Duke is more persuasive than I am."
