Why Some People Always Wear the Same Clothes?

Mark Zuckerberg changes his gray T-shirt only to testify before Senate, Congress, or the Europan Parliament.

“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,” says Zuckerberg, who is a Billionaire since his early twenties.

Steve Jobs, a genius behind the richest tech company, is known for his black turtleneck and a pair of jeans.

“I'm trying to pare down decisions. I don't want to make decisions about what I'm eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.”

Both men have an identical reason to always dress exactly the same. Jobs and Zuckenberg are levering their willpower and focusing on the essential parts of their life’s mission.

Individual psychologists claim that the human brain can only make a certain set of quality decisions in a day before you hit decision fatigue. Similar to working out, you can only do so many bench curls before your arms collapse. However, science is not clear on the issue, as other studies can’t confirm the idea of “decision fatigue.”

I believe decision fatigue is real. My peak productivity hours happen in the morning before I wear my brain down. I can write 4,000 words before noon and then barely scrape 500 words for the rest of the day. If I start writing in the afternoon, I may barely hit a 1,000-word mark by the end of the day.

My brain is much more responsive once it’s rested and doesn’t have to think about clothes, commute, and what to eat.

Clothes are a big stressor if you have a big closet.

How many girls (sometimes boys too) have you heard complain about having nothing to wear next to a stuffed closet that’s one shirt away from becoming a pipe bomb.

Choosing the right combination to wear can be a daunting process. When you have so many options, the decision becomes even harder and may make you seem that nothing is good enough.

You can avoid all that by wearing one good combination that makes you feel good.

Suit and tie and business apparel cut down on decisions. Most people have less than 3 suits and a couple of white shirts. You don’t have to think long and hard to wear a suit to your office work and deploy more mental bandwidth for work-related stuff.

T-shirts are different. You have to be a genius first or run a billion-dollar tech company to wear the same comfy clothes every day.

If I try to wear only a single t-shirt every day, I’d be that dirty guy in his late twenties, who’s depressed and lives in his mother’s warm basement.

Start a billion-dollar company, then wear a single shirt to stay productive, and people will call you a genius for your fashion choice.
