O- Options

I am someone who wants options for almost everything I wish to go for, be it shopping, investing money or choosing a career, preparing a dish, etc.

One should always check out the choices available before making the final decision, isn’t it? Sometimes, just by trying out alternatives, you discover that something you had never thought of venturing would actually work for you. For example, it is usual to assume that a journey by flight would cost you much more than that by train for the same pair of origin and destination, but it is always a good idea to check out both, especially in today’s times of dynamic pricing. There have been times when flight journeys have cost me less than by train, and because the time taken is much less, it has worked for me very well.

However, it is not always a good idea, because often I may be able to close in on my shortlisted alternatives, but cannot pinpoint what would be best for me. My husband hates me for it.  He refuses to join me for shopping because he says I end up buying much more than what I had initially planned for.

What about you – Can you choose from your options easily?

Options are never easy to choose from... you are so right

I am not sure I have that many options available to me these days. But I do know about the difference between air flights and trains. Trains can be horrendously expensive and take so long anyway.

Shopping I don't do a lot of choosing, I tend to buy what I need and that's it.

I love options. It involves making choices & deciding coz we can't take everything!

Options can be good, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by the choices. Which can of tomatoes should I get out of the 27 available at the store?
