Good News of the Day:
When you hear a song you like on the radio, do you check other stations to see if something better is playing? Do you have trouble settling for second best? If so, you may be what Wharton professor Adam Grant calls a “maximizer”: someone who is always seeking the “best” in life. However, striving for the best doesn’t guarantee happiness—in fact, sometimes it runs counter to it.

Be The Change:
If you’re faced with a win-win decision today, be decisive! It could be ordering a sandwich, picking out a gift for someone, or deciding what to wear. Don’t worry about making the right decision—make the decision right by committing to feel satisfied with your choice.
