How to Make Better Decisions

I’m in a constant pursuit of improving my skills as I manage your money and guide you towards your goals.

This study, which I find interesting, studied decisions made by people with empty and full bladders. The full bladder people made better decisions.

While I don’t necessarily think having a full bladder is the true answer to wisdom, I read this study that good decisions are made when there is a deadline, sense of urgency, and you’re focused on your goal so you can move on to other things.

Good takeaways.

Just in case, I’m drinking some water while I write this.
