Overcoming Learned Helplessness

by Dec 18, 2020

The disciplined pursuit of less.

Have you ever felt paralyzed by the number of choices you can make? I often find that when my clients say they struggle to make choices in their free time, it’s not because there’s nothing to do rather, there’s everything to do

It’s why I sometimes find myself glued to social media. With so many possibilities it’s easier to essentially do nothing with our time, than one thing that would be good for us. 

And so, we begin to experience choice fatigue. 

What’s the remedy to this massive productivity killer? Well, it starts with one thing: limiting your choices so that you have a clear path forward. For some that might look like getting clear about your preferred hobby and not overcomplicating the process to get there. 

For others… Well, we’ll uncover that in the episode. Listen with me to uncover the remedy of choice fatigue, so you can overcome your passivity in life.
