The Confirm Button Never Disappoints


File under: awesome travel advice.

On any given week I spend at least several hours in making travel plans. I constantly go back and forth over the various options, sometimes becoming plagued by indecision.

I talked about this recently with my friend and fellow wanderer Stephanie Zito, when we were riding around in a taxi and discussing a few upcoming trips. She has the same problem I do… but she also has a solution:

“I waste a lot of time on minor decisions,” she said, “because I want the best thing. But the truth is that there isn’t always a best thing—or perhaps there are several best things. At the end of the day it probably doesn’t matter which hotel I stay at or how I arrive from the airport.

When you make a decision, you can move on with the rest of the planning. But until you make the decision, you can’t move on.”

There are a million different combinations and options on how to plan a particular trip. Sometimes the best advice is: just pick one.

You know how there’s that final confirmation button after making an initial selection online? It feels really good to get past that. The “confirm” button never disappoints.
