Reduce decision fatigue.
If we make many decisions throughout the day, it gets mentally tiring, and we make worse decisions over time. The solution? Set up your life in a way you don’t need to make many decisions. Here are a few things to reduce the decisions you have to make daily.
- Delegate some decisions to others: Don’t micromanage everything and trust other people to do things well.
- Create rules and habits: Habits and rules take away decisions. In a way, you’re automating your behavior so you don’t have to think a lot.
- Set micro-deadlines for decisions: Try to set micro-deadlines for certain decisions. When the decisions are spaced out like this, you act without pondering on your future choices.
