3 Timeless Rules for Making Tough Decisions

We spend an inordinate amount of time, and a tremendous amount of energy, making choices between equally attractive options in everyday situations. How can we handle decisions of all kinds more efficiently? Here are 3 ways:

  • The first method is to use habits as a way to reduce routine decision fatigue.
