Satisfaction. What does it mean to you? Enough, just right, perfect? What does it take to make you satisfied?

Are you someone who takes decisive action when you’ve found something that you’ve been looking for (let’s say a bike) or do you wait until you’ve assessed all the options out there to make sure you’ve got the best bike you can possibly have?

Often, we seem to be hanging on for something better or wanting more from things in our life. This can lead to dissatisfaction and even anxiety.  Even if we do get the best bike we can possibly have, that one we spent hours searching for and deliberating over – the initial happiness it brings fades, and we often have a desire to ‘upgrade’ our items, starting the cycle all over again…

If you can identify something that you’ve recently spent a long time and a lot of effort looking for, perhaps stop and reassess – is it really that important to you (maybe it is!), will you care about this item in a month, in a year? If not – make a decision and act. Building small changes in this way may help to increase your satisfaction and make you more contented with what you have.

Thanks for reading!
