I'm currently reading ‘Black Box Thinking’ by Matthew Syed, and whilst I am loving the insight it brings around the value of admitting and then learning from our mistakes, it is making me question some of the assumptions I have made in the past and am still making today.
What is most illuminating, however, is that I seem to have a very tiny sweet spot when it comes to information and decisions - too little information and I am prone to decision making paralysis, too much and I end up overthinking like a boss.
So, surely that means that there is an optimum amount of information I need to make a decision.
Or am I thinking that because I don’t have enough information….?
