Episode 97: The Hidden Cost of Effort and Decisions - Bonus Reflections on Mark Bailey's Interview

Jan 12, 2024


We think that the key to success is all about making a good decision and then putting forth the effort to create the outcome. But what if I told you there were some hidden costs involved when we do it this way? If you are ready to streamline your efforts and decisions, then listen up, this podcast episode is for you.

Today, we are going to answer the question… what are the hidden costs that we don’t think about when we make decisions and put forth effort to achieve our goals?

The answer is powerful, it involves… a room full of boxes. And I think it’s going to surprise you.

Together, we will unpack:

  • The often-overlooked costs associated with decision-making.
  • The unexpected challenges and emotional toll that decisions create. 
  • The emotional and logistical challenges involved in pursuing a goal.
  • The effort of not doing something and the cost of inaction versus return on investment.
