The Choice of Today

One thing most people have trouble with is the choices in everyday life, and since most people don’t take the time to value all options I am going to show the importance of this gift. The average functioning adult performs about 12 options in the morning an hour before the sun actually rises. Obviously, this amount changes on an individualized basis, but a subject by one of my own measures, from continuing current career paths, asserts that an adult makes about 70+- decisions a day even if they are just repeats. Once one begins to utilize his/her perceptions, the 1st judgments made are; to sleep or not to sleep, which side of the bed to go off of, what will I wear today, and maybe, will I go to practice? It’s component of our typical human response to making conscious and subconscious decisions continuously on a daily basis. Some of which have short-term effects and others with long-term consequences; should I stay in this job, this association, this area? Fine, what if I told you there was always a better way to make decisions in your daily experience with a simplistic formula? Not necessarily stopping you from making errors but often, to not regret the blunders you make. Interested? Often, we hope that somebody would make life decisions for us though they are present ‘too hard’ or ‘too heavy’ and we cringe the future thought of regret. And so, we choose not to choose sometimes. When we have fewer opportunities, we are constrained to make a determination a bit faster than having too crowded to handle. And if we have no option at all, we either feel disciplined or relieved depending on the situation. This is real; it’s every day and everyone. A simple selection model: you walk into the grocery store to pick up amazing cheese and biscuits. Lane 7 on the left, 14 choices of gluten-free, fat-free, low sodium, wheat, whole grain, etc., etc. (garbage) of light carb loaded bites they call biscuits. How are you supposed to make your one rulings of what types to buy? With various such choices, your brain starts to shift and be a bit confused by nutritional contents, the quantity of serving, price, possible flavor, etc. Wouldn’t the choice be much simpler if there happened to be only 1 or 2 options? Or if intellectually, you stepped in previously craving low sodium? This enables you to make your pre-set for tomfoolery done by yourself. Similarly with clothes shopping, you require a new top for an event, but you have no design what you want to wear. The opportunities are remarkable, but if you think a bit about fits, colors and clothing for the occasion, the judgment becomes a bit easier.
