No more decisions
I cannot remember who was the person that shared this simple idea with me. So I cannot credit them.
Anyways, I have been using this simple idea to help with my decision making for a number of years now and it has worked like a charm.
The idea is very simple.
When you are presented with a decision to make. If it’s not a hell yes! (i.e. an instant yes!) Then it’s an automatic no.
The premise behind this is; if you need a moment to think about the decision, the probability of the decision ending up being a no is so high. You are literally just wasting time to get to no. So why not just short circuit it.
A good example is a marriage proposal.
If you need time to think about it, it’s a no.
