Make Tough Decisions Faster With The ‘Two-Minute’ Rule

Make Tough Decisions Faster With The ‘Two-Minute’ Rule

When faced with a tough decision, a lot of us will hem and haw for hours or days, looking up more information, thinking through the options, and procrastinating far more than necessary. For most decisions, it’s much better to pick an option, and just move on, and the two-minute rule can help.

As you might have guessed, the two-minute rule basically consists of setting a two-minute timer whenever we have to make a tough choice.

This is really more of a self-enforced productivity tip than an actual rule, but it’s useful to keep in the back of your mind to employ as necessary. If a decision really is a 50/50 toss up, either choice will usually work out fine. As someone who has literally spent hours trying to decide out where to eat dinner, I’ll definitely use this going forward.
