From the city in the North, a yellow building standing graciously in front of the St. Annæ Church in Copenhagen, the St. Annæ Gaard. While standing there posing for a quick shoot of outfit I wore that day, I was thinking, Do we need to ALWAYS make the best decisions? Or is it ok to make a mistake by taking a decision and go for it?
I’m a seriously indecisive person, and I worry a lot. Not in a wrong way but calculating different outcomes in almost every situation is my second nature. If I’m out for a meal, it will take me ages to pick a new restaurant which often ended with me visiting the same restaurant. It’s not the meal, but I just know at the end I refuse to make a poor decision. But then, it will close the doors on new adventures, new places, feeling of surprises.
But, there are some lines you can remember in making a decision:
- Figure out how your choices impact your long-term goals.
- Keep these paradoxes in mind… Satisficers or Maximisers
It’s a concept created in 1956 by economist Herbert Simon. In short, satisficers are happy with an adequate solution while maximisers won’t stop until they have the optimal solution.
- Never make a decision when you are not in a good state of mind.
- Less decision to make is the better way to get done on taking it.
- Trust your own gut. Always!
But at the end; Just make that decision, and you are strong enough to handle anything that comes next.
