Have you ever realised that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wears the same grey T-shirt everyday?
There Is something called ‘Decision fatigue’ which means the more decisions we make, the quality of those decisions deteriorates. In plain terms, we need to ensure we don’t ‘waste’ decisions on things that aren’t important such as deciding what T-shirt to wear or what to eat for breakfast!
Zuckerberg said, "I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community,"
He said even small decisions like choosing what to wear or what to eat for breakfast could be tiring and consume energy and he didn't want to waste any time on that.
"I'm in this really lucky position, where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than a billion people. And I feel like I'm not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life," he said.
Is Mark unique in taking this approach? Is appears not. Apple founder Steve Jobs & President Barack Obama also share Mark’s theory.
Barack Obama said, “You’ll see I wear only grey or blue suits, I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.”
Did you notice they all wear the same clothes every day? Probably not. A uniform for everyday or just for work is a great way of staying organised and saving decisions for the bigger things in life…
Steve Jobs always wore a pair of Levi jeans, a black turtleneck & a pair of new balance trainers.
Barack Obama only wears grey or blue suits.
Do you need help with finding the perfect work uniform? The capsule wardrobe which makes getting ready for work a dream?
