An indecisive Danish girl told me that she once decided to change her life. So much time and energy she spent mulling over decisions before they happened, and thinking weather she really made the right decisions after they happened, that for a year she decided to that for every decision that she really just couldn\’t decide on, she\’d flip a coin.
The Dane was liberated. She could enjoy the walk she was taking instead of thinking about the movie she was missing, and if the decision was right.
As we are overloaded ever more with information, not just at our computers but all the time, we are faced with more decisions, more factors, more data to mull and mull and mull as we decide. Like our Dane, many will spend more time deciding and regretting than doing. Unlinke our Dane, not everyone will be so brave as to leave it to random chance. Or to follow through on the commitment to the coin\’s choice.
Someone should think it through and make a rational decision. Just not me. Outsourcing.
In an age of personal organizers, stylists, decorators, what does the future oracle look like?
Brazillian LA-based oracle to the celebrities? 17-year-old Indian kid with Skype and Google for the masses? Or just George Washington?
