Decision Fatigue

Decision Fatigue

Is the decline in the quality of decisions that are made by a person after many decisions have been made in a row.

 Just like your muscles tiring out after a long cardio workout, your brain is also a muscle that becomes exhausted.

Decision Fatigue in Your Life

It explains why you may start to look for shortcuts in your decision making throughout the day. You may even decide to give up and do nothing when you are faced with a decision.

Having a routine limits the number of decisions you have to make each day, which increases your odds of doing the right thing.

Recover from Decision Fatigue

  • Make your most important decisions in the morning.
  • For the lower priority things, go for the simpler option.
  • For daily decisions, plan them the night before.
  • Don’t make any decisions when you’re hungry.
  • Limit and simplify your choices: where and what to eat, what to wear, etc.
  • Aim for “good enough” instead of perfection.
  • Don’t make decisions in places that are full of distractions.
  • Focus on making decisions for items on your to-do list only.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
