Challenge Your Thinking with Dr. Linda Tucker

Kate T. Parker has taken her skill and creativity and blended it to help reshape and expand our culture’s concept of female beauty by empowering girls to believe that real beauty and strength lies in being 100% genuine. Kate’s book, “Strong is the New Pretty,” is a collection of 175 photographs that explore and celebrate beauty based on authenticity. As a mother of daughters herself, this topic is deeply personal for Kate, and as you’ll soon discover, her passion for supporting and empowering girls is an important message... one that all too many brush aside. Alongside the launch of her book, Kate has extended her philanthropic efforts to partner with organizations like Girls on the Run and The Bully Project, investing in girls’ health and education and has also collaborated with brands like Athleta, Kellogg’s and Oxygen. Whether you are a parent of girls or know one this episode is for you. If we want to live in a world where our girls get to play an active role in shaping the future, then we’ve got to begin the work of empowering them now.  And Kate’s here to tell us what we can do to join that team.

Dr. Barry Schwartz, is here to explain why more choices are making us miserable. Contrary to conventional thinking that we can make better choices when we have endless options his 2004 book "The Paradox of Choice," explains that instead of succumbing to the pressure of needing to make the best decision in every situation he is here to discuss the power of "good enough." Barry offers us both practical advice on how to navigate a world of endless choice, as well as gives us a fresh take on wisdom for the modern age. If you struggle with making decisions listening to Barry discuss his research and perspective may possibly have you walking away transformed because if "good enough" really does promise less anxiety and a more satisfied existence, then it is an option at least worth considering.
