You cannot make progress without making decisions.-Jim Rohn
Decision making is ranked as one of the top anxiety producing actions. Much to the dismay of many, we are inevitably faced with decisions at almost every hour of the day. We decide whether or not to hit snooze, what clothes to wear, what to eat, which route to take to work…the list goes on!
While you likely won’t ever avoid the need to make decisions, there are ways to help alleviate some of the anxiety that can often come along with it. I’ll cover techniques and methods in a later blog, but for now, I want to highlight the three main categories of decisions:
If you recognize that you have a no stakes or low stakes decision, don’t stress! Follow the simple guidelines and make the decision. After all, the risk is fairly low and likely won’t dramatically alter your life.
If you recognize that your decision is a bit more high stakes, remember to take your time so that you can choose the option that feels best for you!
