Decision Fatigue is a problem — Productivity Hack.

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions!

Was reading a post this morning and it reminded me of something I have implemented for the better since the past year.

From the time we wake up each morning to the time that we retire, we make hundreds if not thousands of decisions.

It is a proven fact, that our ability to take well-thought decisions is very finite and every time we make any of those daily decisions, we are using brainpower that can be used to make more important decisions of the day.

The result is decision fatigue, a psychological condition where making a current decision ends up affecting your decision-making ability in the future. We end up not saving enough energy to make an informed decision when it is needed most and also end up getting snappy and angry.

I actually actively worked to reduce the number of decisions I need to make and I find that it definitely helps. I don’t dwell even a bit on the petty decisions anymore, I just do whatever feels right at the time and it all works out anyway.

That has allowed me to be a lot calmer when I am at work, my job demands constant attention to detail and figuring either-or, a responsibility I owe to my clients, and doing this has been a game-changer for me.

Has anyone else experienced this?
