We crave options. The more flavors of ice cream the better, right? But that’s not necessarily accurate.
When we have too many options, we become paralyzed in thought. We over analyze and ruminate on which option might be the best. We play constant scenarios in our head.

We can never know which option is best until that scenario plays out. So having more options doesn’t help us. It gives us FOMO (Fear of missing out). We are always thinking “what if?”

Stop looking for a million options. Stop asking countless people for advice. Stop overanalyzing.

Start leaning into what you want and making a decision that is informative yet decisive. We can get into our heads about the “what ifs?” But they don’t matter because we can’t go back.

We can’t play out that simulation.

All we can do is trust our judgment and do the best with what we have in front of us.

Respect the opportunity at hand and be grateful for it.

Otherwise, we’ll always think the grass is greener somewhere else.

I promise, it’s not. The grass is greener where you water it.

That seems like a simple choice to make.
