To tell you the truth, I sometimes find simple decision EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. Let me tell you about how I sucked at a simple but tough decision:-
Time: 10:20 pm
I’m about 3 kilometers away from my home, riding my Yamaha. I’ve my raincoat packed in my backpack. The weather cheats me and the raindrops appear all around.
Extremely Tough Decision Process Begins:-
Option#1: I should stop, wear my raincoat and resume my remaining 3 minute journey to home. It’ll take me about a minute and half to hide myself inside raincoat.
Option#2: I should continue riding my motorcycle, accepting all the raindrops on my neately ironed shirt, recently washed jeans & shoes. This option would involve risk of havnig my clothes wet. The number of raindrops hitting your body do not provide enough data to make a ‘well-informed’ decision.
Few seconds later:-
I realize my clothes are getting wet. But again, not much. The home is about 1 KM away. Decision needs to be taken quickly – options are the same. What should I do?
Few more moments later:-
The number of raindrops per cube ft. increases drastically. I’m about 400 m away from home; cursing myself for not taking a decision earlier.
Final Result: I reach home. My clothes are completely wet. My shoes are wet. My head’s is spinning. 😐
I’m still wondering why couldn’t I decide? Why are such simple decisions extremely hard to take?
