Avoid Decisions Avoid Life

  1. 1. Avoid Decisions Avoid Life
  2. 2. Introduction • We hear many lectures and lessons about calculated risks, clearing obstacles, dealing with problems and making decisions. • Through these classes we are trained to gather as much information and data as we can.
  3. 3. Important • This information is designed at helping us to make decisions that will test us and incrementally improve and innovate our business or professional life.
  4. 4. Information Main Problems • Some people get overwhelmed with choices and feel bombarded with so much information can become afraid of all the possibilities that information can bring. • Psychologists have a term for this — choice overload.
  5. 5. Information Choice Overload – Main Effect • In the presence of an abundance of so much information or too many choices, people often become overwhelmed and even frozen. • These individuals inevitably revert to what is easiest and end up effectively making no decision at all. • That can be particularly dangerous in business and ultimately, in life.
  6. 6. Information Choice Overload - Research • One study showed, that when presented with many products, most consumers tend to default to the easiest choice: “buying nothing at all”.
  7. 7. Choice Aversion Painful Lesson • Another painful lesson in “choice aversion” is the fact that far too many people choose not to choose and by default, allow decisions to made for them. • They thus go through life trying to avoid risk and again, this often means avoiding decisions completely.
  8. 8. Avoid Decisions Avoid Life Conclusion • As a general rule, "losses loom larger than gains“. This is what causes people to avoid decisions and reflexively avoid them altogether. • Avoiding decisions is not really living. • Part of the enjoyment in life is what we accomplish from learning, exploring, and trying new things. • A person truly can't function and enjoy life without making decisions.
