Why decisions hurt (like hell).

Decisions hurt — they hurt because they’re only necessary when we want two of something but can only have one.

The word decision stems from the latin word decidere — which literally mean to cut off.

When you’re deciding, you’re not just gaining something, you’re also taking something away. You’re removing it. You’re eliminating it. You’re cutting it off.
