  • 1. Avoid Decisions Avoid Life
  • 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
