One of the biggest drain on our energy and satisfaction is having open decision loops.
What I mean by that, is any choice that you’re unsure about, and keep on thinking about it in the back of your mind. The back of mind thinking reduces your satisfaction, and doesn’t contribute to a clearer choice.
Another version can be having to think about a choice that you can’t act on yet.
Both of them are fruitless to think about, as they don’t increase your effectiveness at all, they only contribute to overwhelm.
To have a better time with them, attempt to close open decisions as fast as you can, and prevent yourelf from thinking about decisions that you can’t make yet.
