I overthink decisions -- especially ones where both options are great. Should I go to Nice or Mallorca? Buy the blue or the yellow shoes? Order the fish or the lobster?
When I'm facing a decision like this and find myself spending more than a minute deciding, I flip a coin. When the coin is in the air, I usually feel nothing, so either option works. I then let the flip dictate.
Sometimes, though, that small action brings incredible clarity on what option I really want, so go with my gut versus the coin. This silly ritual has simplified and de-stressed my life.
