No matter who you are and what do you do for a living, you make thousands of major/minor decisions every day. Most of them are relatively insignificant; for example, what I should prepare for lunch and who will accompany me for the weekend shopping.
The other decisions that we make are much complex: such as why I should work in this company or when I can purchase a luxury flat.
Whether it is crucial or trivial, circumstances lead us to make several decisions at all times. Sometimes we feel like we are bad at taking decisions, and at other times, we think vice versa. Also, most of the time, we fail to understand how much the decision is appropriate to the regarding context.
From now, let’s avoid this chaos. Let’s start to optimize our daily decisions ourselves.
