### [[The Perils of Pursuing Efficiency]] #Psychology #Self_Awareness #My_Quirks #Introspection I am obsessed with efficiency. So obsessed, that it has the potential to make me very inefficient in certain contexts. For instance, ff I want to search for "Forza Horizon 5" .. this is what happens: - I search for Forza. Aiming to achieve my goal with the least clicks possible. I then get a bunch of unrelated results. - I THEN adjust my search to "Forza Horizon" .. yeah, you read that right. Why spend effort on typing "5", if I can achieve the "same outcome" without it? Needless to say, there are now many Forza Horizons to sift through. Which makes me realize, **I should have just searched for "Forza Horizon 5" from the beginning** .. And this is only one silly example. Combine that with perfectionism .. and you have yourself a mental bioweapon lol I am trying to learn that "less work" is not always more efficient > [!seealso] Related Thoughts > > Related thoughts will appear here when available.
