We don’t have an infinite amount of intellectual capacity, so the more our brain has to do, the more exhausted it gets. The concept of decision fatigue can have significant consequences when it.

Since I began thinking hard about people who wear the same thing every day, I’ve been examining other ways to minimize decisions in my daily life. I’ve put this into practice in obvious ways, and unusual ones. Here are a few practices to minimize decision fatigue and maximize productivity and creativity.

1. EAT THE SAME THING. While drinking more water isn’t a cure for chronic fatigue, it’s still important. Dehydration is known to make fatigue worse.

Staying hydrated is important for improving or maintaining health. You need to avoid overeating and robbing your brain of the ability to digest your food. You need to do what your body demands.

What someone else eats in a day may put weight on you. Today, wanted to go over the Top 5 Ways to Avoid Decision Fatigue: First, and the most effective is to chunk time & tasks.

  • Haha ��! “All these decisions…& there you stay marshmallow puff man…” ���������� I’m so relating to this video. You’re harious!

  • This helped me a lot, we bought a house recently and it’s been so overwhelming all the possibilities and things we can now do. I think the 10/10/10 rule will help me a lot to not be afraid to make mistakes and just dó stuff instead of being ‘stuck’.

  • Hey! I’m your 2nd non-US viewer! Come from a country your 1st lady is home from though and have relatives in the USA, so does that count?:)

  • I have a friend of mine that carries a small pouch with dice in it. Whenever he needs to make a decision, he writes down the options in a numbered list and uses either a coin flip or dice roll to decide. The decision is final and absolute so he never has to second guess anything. I hope this helps someone!

  • This walked me through why I’ve not started my YouTube channel yet. These are the first practical steps I’ve heard to approach this problem and I actually feel like I can overcome it. So, this is me saying I’m going to post my first video by Friday!
    I am absolutely terrified; thank you! (I feel like this is a terrible comment, so I’m posting it intentionally.)

  • I’ve been paralyzed towards deciding what major I want to have in college for… awhile (I’m entering sophomore year). I feel like if I make the wrong decision I will be angry at myself about it for the rest of my life because of the amount of time and money goes into getting a degree. If anyone has any advice, please reply. (Also congrats Craig on hitting 1mil!!!)

  • Really happy to see someone tackling this subject because it gets less attention than it should.
    You explained everything perfectly. Because we don’t see or localize the decision fatigue we tend to ignore it. That’s when it hits:)
    Keep up the grind!

  • I seriously struggle with decision making. For example, deciding on a gift for someone, or deciding what iron to buy next. It’s because of so many possibilities, but especially, so many possible outcomes. This decision paralysis that I have is also strongly related to my people pleasing tendencies…I always think about how people will react if I decide something. If I would think only about myself when deciding, things would be much easier. I also suspect a bit of ADD. I get very easily overwhelmed when too many things are going on at the same time.

  • Key points for those who already watched it:

    Have you really decided to read this summary before watching the video? Don’t spoil yourself this is a good one and worth the time… Save it in watch later if you don’t have time rn.

    How to be more decisive

    1. Write down goals & priorities 2:03
    2. Reduce or remove small decisions 3:54
    3. Identify why you’re not deciding 5:32
    4. Widen your options 5:56
    5. Reality test your assumptions 7:35
    6. Set a time limit 9:44
    7. Embrace failure 10:12

  • Congratulations on hitting a million Craig! Few YouTubers deserve this milestone more than you. I’m glad that you’ll FINALLY get your gold play button!

  • 0:10 every other regime but capitalism. Unfortunately capitalism gives the illusion of choice through thorough confusion. People under every other regime: Please let us make our own choices! ������
    Love your videos man! ��

  • Early congrats on the 1-million subscribers, Craig! Can’t believe I’ve been here since before you had 5,000:-D Sorry it took a while, this was long overdue! Hopefully I can join you in the Gold Play Button lounge someday…

  • Hello. I am curious of how you make your videos.
    Is it a process with separated planing scripting shooting and editing parts?
    Or may be it is the idea and start shooting. On the way you have several ideas how to show stuff and shoot again. During editing you have ideas how to improve the video and shoot some more.
    It seams like you are using the second way.

    I just thought that if you get used to shooting in that free way it will be hard to make a good movie.
    Suggestion for a challenge!!!!
    If you could make a month of videos where you strictly separate planning, scripting, shooting and editing. May be sound? That will not be easy. And that will make you a much better movie maker.
    P.S. Thanks for videos. Make more.

  • Make a good movie!?! Are you kidding have you seen Evil Bong? Have you heard of Sharknado!?! There is no such thing as a stupid movie.

  • I don’t consider myself an “indecisive” person, but that’s mainly because I end up impulsively choosing something due to frustration. But I really do get that decision fatigue. This is so helpful. I shouldn’t have ignored it in my watch later list for so long.

  • Wheezy Wisdoms:

    “Each choice is draining, and you only have so much choice juice”
    “Not all decisions have to be quick”
    “You’re not going to celebrate a priority, make a goal”
    “Eliminating small decisions reserves energy for other bigger decisions”
    “If you dont know the answer, broaden your options.”
    “Beware binary choices”
    “Set a time limit”
    “Have contingency plans”
    “If failure happens, troubleshoot”
    “Fail intentionally” (also known in improv as Be Open To Embarrassing Yourself)

  • Oh wow! You are super close to hitting 1 million subscribers!! What! I’m so glad I’ve stuck around all these years. It’s only gotten better.:)

  • There’s a great ted talk by Dan Gilbert, “The Surprising Science of Happiness”He talks about how any outcome, good or bad, is likely not going to be AS good or bad as you think

  • As a leader in a large organization I have to make lots of very important decisions all day, making my tank empty by the time i get home making even small decisions difficult. Great chat.

  • Really good and smart video, really informative. The key is try to focus on what’s most important or the highest priority early on.

  • The thing with goals and priorities is that they are dynamic. Priorities will follow a different order at different stages of life, so a list of Goals and Priorities will have to be dynamic as well. Especially Career, Health and Family/friends: these 3 will keep interchanging positions depending on your situation in life.

  • Thank you for making all those choices that led to this video so i could make the choice to learn about procrastination while procrastinating.

  • Every single one of your videos amaze me. The decisions you make are amazing!!! Like when you were talking about when you make the cut and then you made the cut in the middle of the last word of the sentence. COMEDIC GOLD. thank you so much for making this platform a place I actually want to frequent!!

  • As of right now he has 999k subscribers. I just played the subscription lottery and did not win. So congrats to the future lucky number 1 million, whomever you are…

  • Here’s to 1,000,000 subscribers! Also, I just discovered Wheezy News. I have been enjoying some of your videos on that channel as well. Hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy.

  • Really great video, but I had to rewatch it when you said “social justice.” Laughed at that for the rest of the whole video a missed everything hence the need to rewatch. Can’t stand that woke stuff. Still a really good video, thank you for the acronym!
