We all want to alleviate suffering and promote wellbeing for our fellow humans, nonhuman animals, and the earth we share. Yet as much as we care, we often achieve less than we hoped, not for lack of effort but because our noble efforts may be under-thought. Unfortunately, our brains come preprogrammed with cognitive biases and other flawed software that distorts our views of what issues cause suffering, what remedies exist, and how we can best contribute to the solution. So, let’s explore how we think about doing good, where conventional wisdom often misleads us, and what psychologists and philosophers can teach us about compassion and effective action for global betterment.

Logan Sullivan spent nearly a decade in 60-some countries as an aid worker, advocate, conservationist and writer investigating how one individual can most effectively and reliably impact positive change. As the host of the IMPACTivism Podcast, he continues this investigation.
