I'm an over-analyzer. I can research the heck out of something, trying to make just the right choice. I recently learned something about decision-making. People who determine their criteria, pick the first thing that meets it, and move on -- are happier. It makes sense. Contentment.
I'm aiming toward that mark.
I can easily flounder in indecision, trying to tease out the "best" decision, but the struggle doesn't necessarily lead to a better end. In fact, it will most likely lead to disappointment. Expectations can kill many passions. I could sit for a while in the morning, deciding what to make -- what will be most meaningful or beautiful or achieve more tallies on the social media scoreboard. Or -- I could make the first thing that comes to mind that I have the materials and time for, and move along. Jaded as it may seem, it's pretty satisfying. Sometimes these outcomes really surprise me, with the result far better than I imagined. There's a lot to be said for low expectations, friends.
