[Minimalism] & [Buddhism] | Decisions


So, I was stuck at the supermarket shelf for a good 20 minutes because I could not decide whether to purchase Brand A Pinto Beans or Brand B Pinto Beans.

I tried Brand A before but not Brand B but Brand B is cheaper than Brand A and…

After the 20th minute, I got frustrated and worried.

Frustrated at myself for not being able to make a damn decision and worried because the supermarket was closing in 30 minutes!

It’s just freaking PINTO BEANS!

What did I do then?

Say Om Breaths~

Check the Item Production Date and Expiry Date (To me, items that have a long gap in between tend to go through more processing. That may result in the loss of nutrients. Also, a later expiry date denotes that the item is of a recent batch.)

Check the Ingredient List (This is to ensure that there is no additional chemicals.)

Check the Colour of the Item (Pinto beans should look like Pinto beans, not Kidney beans!)

Make a selection! 

Technically, that took me less than 5 minutes.

And I could move on to finish up my marketing.
