It’s a real thing. When I heard the term in a meeting this week, I realized the phrase “decision fatigue” described perfectly what many of us (including me) have been experiencing.  When change comes as fast and hard as it has been, under extreme circumstances with our personal and professional worlds melting together, even the best of us struggle with all of… View Article

Do You Have It In You? #304
