For those of you who are too fatigued to click on the link and read the article, here are the steps that they recommend:
1) Get the important things out of the way early on in the day, before you’ve reached your frustration threshold.
2) Decrease your range of options. An approach that they recommend is to set a time limit on your decision making.
3) Once you have made a decision, stick with it. Don't keep second-guessing yourself.
4) After all that decision-making, give yourself a break.

DH and I use this phrase ALL THE TIME. Love it. This is one way that I think TP and pre-planning makes our trips more fun. We can coast through our day and follow the plan and not have QUITE so many things to decide every 5 min!

I've made all my decisions and need something else to do. But what is next? Do I change the decisions? My countdown is too long!
