#44: The Surprising Truth about Decision FatigueMar 23, 2023
What even IS Decision Fatigue?
We care because understanding it = how we solve it better & faster. 😉
I used to hear about the concept of Decision Fatigue and think sure, that makes sense in theory...but then I'd generally assume one of two things:
a) It didn't apply to me. - After all, I'm not over here makin' life-or-death decisions all day long. I'm overthinking "dinner" so...how fatigued could I really be?
b) There's nothing to be done about it. - Apart from wear the same outfit every day like all the famous successful people who "cut down their decision load" in this extreme-sounding way...what can you really do about the fact that your brain gets tired?
As a Decision Coach now, however, I'm committed to making sure we all understand what the heck is REALLY happening with the phenomenon of Decision Fatigue — and how to SOLVE it!
This week, we're diving into the science of Decision Fatigue:
- How does "mental energy" work?
- What depletes mental energy?
- Is our decision-making truly affected by how mentally tired we are? (spoiler YES, and I share a fascinating study that illustrates to what extent!)
When you're more knowledgeable about what's happening to you, you're more primed to solve it.
AND I want you to be less hard on yourself in the process.
I've worked with a lot of people who want to diminish their challenges because "I shouldn't get so overwhelmed by decisions about dinner" — but this episode proves that it makes sense, and it's a valid problem to need to solve!
