My latest article for BiggerPockets takes on decision fatigue and the importance of making small decisions quickly and decisively. The more you agonize, the more you drain your willpower and reduce your mental energy for when you actually need it.
I note some examples, from the real estate field, such as "Should you go with this $49 light fixture you normally use or this one that is nicer and normally sells for $89 but is on sale now for $69?" Or "Should you put a stripe on your business card design or not?" The answer, is basically "who cares?" Just make a decision!
As I conclude,
"Of course, other decisions require more careful thought, such as what to offer on a certain house or whether to accept a tenant or not. But if you take a step back, a decision’s importance is usually relatively obvious. Don’t let yourself get bogged down focusing on the little things. 'Don’t sweat the small stuff,' as they say. If you do, you’ll just wear out your willpower for when you actually need it."
