All in all, it’s been an exciting few months. It’s also been fantastic to see some of our trainees doing so well and expanding their own businesses.
Naturally, growth and development has its downfalls. Just after finishing our Optimal Performance Leader Program and her outdoor sports vacation our founder, Roelien, mentioned that she was struggling to make effective decisions. She said she was suffering from so called ‘decision fatigue’. I thought I’d do an experiment and see how the Mind5 M.E.T.H.O.D. fits in here.
What is decision fatigue?
Although I had never heard the term before, I understood what Roelien meant. I’m sure we’ve all experienced something like this at some point in our lives, whether this has been an inability to make decisions at all or a tendency to make poor decisions. Either way, it’s a well known feeling.
"Decision fatigue refers to the deteriorating quality of decisions made by an individual after a long session of decision making. "
Making poor decisions, or lacking the energy to make decisions at all, is not ideal - especially not if you want to achieve optimal levels of performance. So how can a physical and experientially based method help here? Surely decision fatigue is something entirely mental?
Indeed it is. It is intangible and perhaps difficult to describe. But it is not so difficult to explain and is certainly not difficult to resolve. You just have to know where to start.
