Here’s what I mean…

If you're angry, upset or stressed, the chances of you making a bad decision goes

through the roof.

This is true even if you have a physical issue like not getting enough sleep or if you’re

hungry. Decision making is hard on the brain and absorbs a ton of energy. This

pressures rises even more when there’s a complex decision looming over you.

So, when you’re faced with a difficult situation that requires a tough decision, show

yourself some kindness. Give yourself a time out. There’s no need to go for a week-long

Do anything that will take your mind off the decision. When you do, your subconcsious

mind will take over and work on the problem. This way, when you come back to it,

making a decision (even if it’s a tough one) will suddenly feel a whole lot easier.
