Decision fatigue is real. Any way we can eliminate the decision making process will free up our capacity for important decisions.
A sure fire way to do that is by making the big decision of purpose before the little decisions crop up. Figuring out the reason for the thing you’re trying to accomplish should provide enough direction to make smaller decision easier. If the purpose is difficult to define then there isn’t enough clarity to begin with.
Not having a clear purpose is similar to having a cluttered desk. It’s harder to focus on the work.
When things are in their place focus can be deliberate and directed.
