In today’s world of instant gratification, where we want everything instantly makes us accustomed to instant gratification bias in other important areas of our work. Constantly giving into temptations can lead to unproductive habits, poor decision-making, anger, stress, overwhelm and impulsive behaviour.
When we lack awareness of how habits are structured and how to use that structure to our advantage, we fail to be consistent with our new habits. Whether you are giving into your daily distractions or it is your temptations that are leading you into old ways, making resolutions strengthen our cognitive behavioural processes to persevere.
How you make tough choices often shapes your workplace decision-making culture. Blindly following your perception of what’s right or wrong can lead to poor or faulty decision-making and sometimes to decision avoidance.
Do you ever find yourself struggling to stay on track with your health or fitness goals, start a new project or business or make a change in your personal or professional life - chances are that your excuses are coming in your way.
