LIFE’S most important decisions are best ignored and put off until they become absolutely impossible to avoid, a study has confirmed.
Experts found that taking time to thoroughly think big decisions through is not as effective as making a last minute snap decision based on stress and fear.
Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “The more rushed you feel when making a decision, the better you’ll be able to brush things off when it turns out you’ve made the wrong call – which you inevitably will, because you’ve given it almost no thought.”
According to the study, smaller decisions, such as what to have for lunch, or whether to take an umbrella with you to work, should be thought through obsessively.
Professor Brubaker added: “The more you tear the arse out of worrying about the little things in life, the greater your ability to delay thinking about the big things.”
