How much time and effort do you put into what you wear? Even a small task can take nearly hours out of your week. Why not simplify it? Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, answers a question at a press conference about why he wore the same grey shirt every day and responds, “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community,” Zuckerberg said, after clarifying that he had “multiple same shirts.”
And he’s right, Refinery29 coins this term as decision fatigue, stating “once you eliminate the small, inconsequential choices you make daily, you can free up your mind to be more creative and productive”.
Here is a brief overview of techniques for building an 8 item wardrobe that will fit your needs of a 5 day work week, whether on the go or at an office.
