Option Paralysis — issue or not?

This or that? Faced with so many options, sometimes we just choose none. Have you experienced this? During this lockdown, I would think of so many things to do but I end up doing nothing since I got tired just thinking of them all.

To relax, I would turn on Netflix and decide on a movie or a show. Again, there are so many choices that after an hour I’m still in the selection process. I ended up fatigued and far from relaxed.

Anyone of you in the same boat? Is option paralysis an issue? an annoyance? an inconvenience? a myth? What do you think?


  1. It has been an issue for me in the past, now I use it as an indicator to work through the feelings to get work done or start thinking of a new resolution
