In everything we do, we strive to make the “right” choice at minimum, and the “perfect” choice where possible.

Whether it’s choosing a passion, business idea or niche, significant other, or even something as trivial as what to watch next on Netflix, we feel the pressure to choose well.

This tends to steal our joy in the shorter and longer term.

In the short term, we end up focusing on all the other choices we could have made. And we tend go back on our choices relatively quickly.

In the long term, we go back to the moment of decision, wondering what it would have been like to choose a different path, assuming that another path would have been better by comparison.

Where there is the incessant pressure to make the perfect decision, expect unhappiness.

Why? Because you’re expecting perfection. So, you’re not willing to accept anything other than what you would consider perfect – from yourself and from others. As result, you will feel like a failure every time you fail to make a perfect decision.

People who commit to the choices they make are happier because they don’t constantly second guess themselves. They understand that life won’t be “perfect” under any circumstances. They can see that the abundance of options isn’t going to make one iota of difference to their happiness.

And don’t forget, perfect is only an opinion, and everyone has their own.
