Struggling with the Hard Choice

I won the lottery by letting a computer pick a set of random numbers for me. After taxes were taken out, I was left with a pretty large sum of money. I decided to put some of that money into home improvement. I had been looking at the ugly plantation shutters that my home had and decided that they need to be replaced with some new ones. The shutters probably don’t rank very high on a list of things that would be replaced in a home, but for me, I just didn’t want to see the old ones anymore. They came with the home, and I didn’t really mind them when I bought the home, but over time, they just weren’t appealing to look at anymore.

I looked at some new shutter designs on line for something that would be a drastic improvement over my old ones, while still matching with the overall theme of my home. My indecisive nature didn’t help in the matter, because there were a lot of options to choose from, and they all seemed like they would be a good fit for my home. I asked a couple of friend which one they would choose if they were shopping for new shutters, and they all came up with their own individual picks with no kind of overlap between. I was essentially back where I started.

The more thought I put into my plantation shutter choice, the more indecisive I became. Since I couldn’t think of a choice, and my friends didn’t help much, I just picked a set of shutters at random. Once they were installed, they looked great in my home. Next time I have to make an important home decision, I’ll be sure to avoid asking too many people, because I’ll just get nowhere.
