Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision

I know that squirrels are adorable, however, they also carry rabies and are pretty mean. But back to the quote. If you are as indecisive as I am, this is for you. As Barry Schwartz very well explains in his TED talk, (from 2004) I am a “maximizer”: I need to wade through ALL choice and choose the best one. Well, I am working hard at becoming a “satisficer”, that will pick the first good choice that solve the problem.

cover of the book: the paradox of choiceGuess which group of people s the most satisfied with their choices??

If you a intrigued by this theory, get the wonderful book, The Paradox Of Choice by Barry Schwartz. It really changed my outlook and made my life better for sure.
