My 31 personal habits to inspire, inform & support your lifestyle change
Everyday buying, personal or business decisions – both big and small – have become increasingly complex due to the overwhelming abundance of choice and information with which we are presented in our world.
Often people assume more choice means better options and greater satisfaction. But choice overload can set you up for unrealistically high expectations, and it can make you blame yourself for any „failures“. In the long run, this can lead to decision-making stress through perfection and anxiety.
🙋🏻♀️ Maximizers (those who always aim to make the best possible choice) and Satisficers (those who aim for “good enough,” whether or not better selections might be out there). I like to combine these two roles, it helps me to choose based on how important „it“ is for me. I’ve learned to choose always, because then you can choose again and maybe better, when the choice didn’t suit that well…. And when the setting, atmosphere and company is right, then for sure everything is good enough already!
💡So choose when to choose and restrict your options when the decision is not crucial… for example the number of shops when you go cloths shopping. Moreover learn to accept “good enough.” Settle for a choice that meets your core requirements rather than searching for the elusive “best.” And then stop thinking about it. Most important don’t worry about what you’re missing, teach yourself to focus on the positive parts of the selection you make and lower your expectations – you will then be more satisfied with life.
