Trade-offs are a necessary evil

Not making trade-off decisions isn’t an option. Either you make them yourself, or somebody else will make them for you.

You have to design your morning routine, or somebody else (your job for e.g) will do it for you.

You have to decide your life priorities, or somebody else (your peers for e.g.) will do it for you.

You have to decide which friends you keep in touch with, or somebody else (Facebook for e.g.) will do it for you.

Trade-offs can be difficult. Among all your close friends, it isn’t pleasant to pick out the 5 with which you would keep in touch regularly. But to not make those important decisions is to surrender them to external forces.
