I have been thinking about a problem. Not a big thing, not life or death, I need to make a purchasing decision, new or used, repair or wait. Normally I would create such a fuss I’d get decision fatigue, then make a rash judgment. I’d grab something so quick it would make everyone else’s head spin.
Money is a hindrance to wise choices. With plenty of cash, there are options. So, I ponder. Feeling tight with money, I hesitate even more. I can’t trust my instincts. Option number one seems promising. Yeah, that’s the way. I’ll take door number one. But door number two is also lovely. Ugh. Sometimes I feel like scrapping everything.
What if I enjoy my indecision, this interim moment when I haven’t chosen a door? No color, no option, and many opportunities are laid out before me as if I’m at a banquet table. All of the questions are good. Be there.
Too many choices paralyze us, and can lead to increased anxiety and even depression.Dan Trommater
