This New York Times article is called “How to Make Tough Decisions Easier.” It’s an interesting read, and we recommend it for anyone who is facing a difficult decision.

Key takeaways include:

  • Realizing that F.O.B.O (fear of better options)is what is causing indecision. While F.O.B.O can sometimes lead to good decisions, it often makes decision makers less satisfied with what they chose.
  • Strategies to define your M.F.D (the minimum outcome you are wiling to accept). With the M.F.D., you think strategically about the future, while focusing on the upside, not the downside.
