You have to know when to make a decision. The number of decisions in a day makes detailed analysis of all options infeasible. Prioritization helps, but you’ll still have to decide. Accelerate your decision making by going with the first adequate and reversible solution.
What we don’t know has a disproportionate impact on our life than what we know. There will always be more information than any single individual could understand alone. It is together that we have the greatest chance to making informed decisions.
