Daily Greatness: a Deep Dive Into the Habits of Highly Successful People
Habit #2: Plan Ahead, Avoid Decision Fatigue
Planning ahead is key to developing the lifestyle that you desire. If you simply wake up in the morning and “wing it” all day, you will fall back on old unhealthy habits when decision fatigue sets in.
Decision fatigue is the deteriorating quality of decisions made after a long session of decision making. So what does that mean? That means that when you spend your day making a ton of decisions at work, by the time you leave, you are “decision-ed OUT”!
If you haven’t pre-planned out your dinner or even thought about it before you get in your car to leave work, you may find yourself in the drive-thru lane at your old spot. Your brain is tired and doesn’t want to have to make another decision so it will revert to old habits. This is why planning ahead is key. You can get in your car and head home for that meal you already prepared, with no decisions to be made at the end of a long day.
