Every waking moment we are faced with choices.
At the moment, the choice we make feels like the right decision.
Once some time has passed, we might realize we made a mistake.
Hindsight is 20/20, of course. But oftentimes, our choice was due to:
- Peer pressure
- Unexplored biases
- A hyper-focus on the short term
- Obsessing over sunk costs
- Insufficient, or imperfect, information
These are all a result of outside forces, right?
We can unlearn and insulate ourselves from these outside forces.
Good news! With some rational thought, we can get better at making choices.
