Decision at the Right Time

When you have to make a big decision, does the time of the day make a difference? Research suggests that there is a right and a wrong time of the day to make important decisions. As such, a team of Argentinian psychological scientists turned to the decision-making behaviour of 184 users of the Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) to discover at what time of day players made the best decisions.

It was noted that all players made slower and more accurate decisions in the morning. Regardless of chronotype, gender and time zone, the best time of day for all participants was the morning. By afternoon the players would be slow in their decision-making capabilities. Come evening, and all players made faster and quick decisions which proved fatal to some of the players. Hence it was observed that the best time in a day to make a decision was in the morning.

Early morning hours are the best choice as both your energy and self are in control after a well-spent night. It is also noted that an empty stomach can lead to inaccurate decision. Hence, if you plan to make an important decision in the morning, ensure you’ve eaten a fulfilling meal to help you make a better choice when faced with a tough decision.

So now that you know the importance of a morning, ensure you sleep well in the night to start your day on a productive note. Sleep well and make the right and accurate decisions in the morning for a fulfilling personal and professional life.
