Infinity Coping

Our brains have limited processing capacity. When confronted with choices our decision time increases exponentially over three choices and more, for every additional choice.

This seems counter-intuitive at first. Having more options presents a greater chance that the optimal solution is available. This may be so. The uncertainty of whether this solution is amoung the listed quickly leads to incapacity.

What if a better solution becomes available tomorrow? What if I find a better bargain later in the week?

In a world where we are confronted with infinite scroll, where do we stop? How much time do we waste scrolling through the options, afraid to decide too soon?

How do we manage our workloads in a sustainable way when there is more than we can complete in a day?

When is enough? When is too much?

Your principles will define your truth.

Or reality will define your principles.
