Decision fatigue can pose significant challenges, making it difficult to maintain peak performance levels. However, strategies can be implemented to combat decision fatigue and keep you operating like a well-oiled machine.
Here are some recommendations to boost your decision-making capacity.
Try Temporal Distancing
Temporal distancing involves mentally projecting yourself into the future and evaluating potential decisions from that vantage point. For example, if you're considering a job offer, you might ask yourself: "If I were to accept this job and look back on it a year from now, would I feel proud of my decision?"
This technique can reduce impulsivity, allowing for a more rational approach.
By considering your future self, you may be more likely to make choices that align with your values and contribute to your long-term success.
