Decision Fatigue

I think you can agree, our lives have grown increasingly complex with the number of decisions we need to make throughout the day.

As a result, we suffer from decision fatigue.

What is decision fatigue?

Decision fatigue is the mental wear from making choices during the course of your day.

Imagine a fuel tank in the brain. When the brain's tank is full we make better, more logical decisions. As that tank empties the quality of our decision making decreases.

Every choice we make contributes to the draining of our brain's fuel tank. In addition, making choices in unrelated areas burns through our mental fuel faster.

For example, "What should I wear today? What are we having for dinner? How should I respond to this email?" Three common decisions in different areas of life that compound decision fatigue.

What can we do about it?

First, recognize it. Pay attention to your decision making over the next few days. On Thursday, we'll explore techniques to get better milage from the fuel in the brain.
