Why We Make Decisions We Regret

“Discipline weighs ounces, but regret weighs tons.” - Jim Rohn

Why do we know the right thing to do, for our health, our business, our relationships, and yet choose to do the opposite thing? In fact, our bodies are built to make snap decisions to keep us safe, while our minds can calculate future benefits against current action. These two warring systems are the cause of a lot of our internal struggles, and understanding them can help us better motivate ourselves and those we seek to influence.
