Where do the fu*kits come along for you on the journey?
It’s late; you’re tired, you don’t feel like cooking, it’s easier to skip the workout, grab some take out, open a bottle of wine, and let the fuck-it’s take control.
It’s a common problem.
We make so many decisions from the moment we wake up to the moment we shut our eyes at night.
What to wear, workouts to do, what to eat for lunch, and you haven’t left your house yet.
Then we are faced with even more decisions on the job.
It’s no wonder that you don’t feel like doing sh*t by the time you get off of work.
Every day may feel like a battle between your willpower and giving up.
Don’t worry; I’ve got you here.
The key to not giving in is minimalism.
No, you don’t have to sell all of your belongings and live in a van (unless you want to). The point is to minimize the decisions you make daily.
Minimizing Decision Fatigue
What requires brainpower = what makes you money, what makes you happy, and what inspires you. You can define this on your terms.
What shouldn’t require brainpower = what socks to wear, what time you’re going to work out, which workouts to do, which tea to drink, what credit card to use!
We can learn something from people in leadership positions in the past or present like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama, and Einstein.
They all wear the same clothes every day. Barack Obama wore the same colored suits every day. Mark Zuckerberg owns 10 of the same t-shirts and three of the same jeans. Both men dress this way to minimize the small decisions they have to make to create space for larger ones.
If you expect yourself to cook an Instagram-worthy meal every night, you may be shooting yourself in the foot.
How can you minimize your decisions throughout the day?
Think of your brain as a muscle. Just like our biceps tire after countless reps at the gym, so does our brain.
Key takeaway – Become a minimalist by minimizing the number of decisions you make during the day.
The fu*kits are the enemy of your goals.
Knowing your WHY is the antidote! When your why is big enough, fu*king it up is impossible.⠀
Time To Take Action:
- List out all the decisions you make daily.
- Which ones are important to you?
- Which ones are unimportant to you?
- Automate your answers from question 3 like:
- What meals to eat
- When you are going to workout
- What clothes to wear to the gym
You can overcome the “fu*kits” by creating a bulletproof system in your life like minimizing decisions, installing one time habits, creating schedules, and outsourcing thinking and planning.
