Are you Experiencing Decision Fatigue?

Mar 12, 2021

You probably know that your brain is making decisions for you every moment. What is the colour of shoes you want to wear to work today? What is there for lunch today? Or where do I invest my money this time? Whatever the purpose, your brain is constantly making decisions for you, regardless of the gravity of the situation.

Some sources suggest that the average person makes an eye-popping 35,000 choices per day. Assuming that most people spend around seven hours per day sleeping and thus blissfully choice-free, that makes roughly 2,000 decisions per hour or one decision every two seconds. Our smart phones present multiple opportunities and challenges to our brains for making decisions through social media, Facebook, text message and email notifications.

And this begins to build stress, anxiety and most importantly decision fatigue.

Now, I’m definitely not suggesting we obsess over every single phone notification so as not to miss opportunities. Too many people suffer from phone-related distraction and procrastination already, which in itself can influence decisions in other areas of life. Instead, I am arguing for more awareness of the vast quantity of choices that present themselves each day.

No matter the exact number of daily decisions, we might as well pay attention to them, because, as author John C. Maxwell famously put it—
“Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you.”
