Wanna Make Better Decisions? Don't Trust The Experts

Are you a procrastinator or simply bombarded with so many choices you can’t make a quick decision? Do you waste time, trying to be decisive? Apparently you’re not the only one. If deciding whether to have a flat white or a cappuccino is causing you to lose sleep at night, you’ll want to read on...
Data overload is leading us to make the wrong choices, according to a new book aptly titled, Eyes Wide Open: How to Make Smart Decisions in a Confusing World . The author, Noreena Hertz, is no professor, but she does have some advice for the indecisive among us which can be summed up as such: Experts aren't always right, you can never get too much sleep, and it pays to take time for yourself. It’s hardly rocket science, but that sounds exactly like the kind of advice we'd be interested in taking. Now, should we stay in or go out tonight? (The Times)
