Decision fatigue describes the deteriorating decision-making abilities of humans after making many decisions.

That is, our ability to make decisions deteriorates over time during a day. Perhaps then, our ability resets for the next day; this is something I will read more on.

Decision fatigue can lead to decision avoidance, which means keeping away from making a decision; and practically it means doing nothing.

What are the implications of decision fatigue and decision avoidance: how should we act after learning of these cognitive limitations?
