Fear of missing out Practical decision-making in a world of overwhelming choice

Patrick J. McGinnis

Book - 2020

"We make more than 35,000 decisions a day. Some impulsive, some logical, and some complex and paralyzing. Compounded with our "always on" society, the pressures and stresses wrought by endless access to yet another option or possibility can create an endless loop of indecision and unease. Patrick McGinnis has the scientific secrets to make any decision simple-while simultaneously eliminating your stress. Living decisively doesn't happen overnight, but through focus, convictio...n, and relishing in your choices, you can begin to live happily with every decision you make"--
