I wasn’t sure where to go with this, so I made a list:
- Easy Decisions
- Limited choices
- Immediate results
- Determined by myself
- Hard Decisions
- Too many options
- Long term results
- Determined after getting feedback from others and/or research
I don’t feel like this has been outside my awareness, so I must be missing something! I don’t know what that is, so I’ve come up with a plan to work through my hard decisions:
- Don’t seek/ask for feedback
- Reward myself with something immediate
- No more Googling! It’s a great tool, but I totally have FOMO now! There always seems to be some other better, brighter way to do something.
Last night, I had a concrete manifestation of my problem. As I was unpacking my trunk, I realized how much chaos happens due to my indecision.
I’m away from home for 3 days and packed 7 days’ worth of clothes. I couldn’t decide what to wear and threw everything in. I thought that it would make life easier, but it’s actually a more difficult. It’s hard to find what I want and it’s a complete mess! Why did I create this extra work for myself?!
Starting today, I’m going to “pack my car” with only what I need.
