We all want to be more productive – the question is: how? Ayelet Fishbach is the Jeffrey Breakenridge Keller Professor of Behavioral Science and Marketing at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and the past president of the Society for the Study of Motivation. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss research into why we can’t always find the mental strength to take on a new task, how to clear the distractions that get in the way, and ways to stay on target to reach your goals. Her book is “Get It Done: Surprising Lessons from the Science of Motivation.”
