Ten Thousand Choices

By Dr. Steven Eisenberg

Ten Thousand Choices

Every day.

Ten thousand.

10,000!

Choices!

Ten thousand daily choices to make.

How many do I consciously make?

How many are "automatic for the people?"

Unconscious habitual stuff?

Tons.

I wake up.

Not much choice there.

There's the phone.

Oooh, there it is!

Choose.

I could pick it up.

Choose.

Do I have to pick it up?

Choose.

I can leave it for a while.

Choose.

I choose (with difficulty) to let it lie.

Cause I know that tiny choice will make me happier.

Happier when playing the long game.

Let it lie.

Choose.

Sit up.

Close eyes.

Choose.

Silence.

Choose.

Let it lie.

Choose.

Breathe.
