Decision Making Fatigue, it’s a thing and it’s why many of those well known high achievers wear a uniform of sorts.
Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg spring to mind for many but think about someone in a different area such Ricky Gervais, black t-shirt and blue jeans. Simon Cowell, interestingly also black t-shirt and blue jeans. There are many others that do this but why?
As someone who is not interested in shopping for clothes or fashion then I can relate. It’s uniforms in our clinic all the way! Navy scrubs, nice, comfortable well cut ones are a must. I have not got time to think about what to wear on a morning.
Out of clinic, day to day I nearly always wear jeans, t-shirt/top or similar. Actually that’s on nearly all occasions. I’m quite happy with that, I don’t need to impress with labels, Don’t get me wrong, when I see a beautifully put together outfit, I appreciate the way they look and am in awe of their skills (and it is another thing I do outsource), every season I get someone to put a style board together for me with links to the clothes to buy and how to wear them, love it (I use https://www.lauracootestyling.com). But it if was just left to me, it’s just another thing to think about and I don’t take any pleasure in it thus the outsource.
