I just learned the definition of satisficing this week. Yes, even a 39 year old can learn new words. Last week, I introduced Figuring Out 40, a Sunday series I’ve started because I’m turning 40 in a few weeks.
My 40 year old friend invited me to chat over coffee. When we started talking about life decisions mothers make, she introduced me to the word satisfice. First, I thought it was satisfy and sacrifice together. But I was wrong.
Satisficing is a verb that means “to act in such a way as to satisfy the minimum requirements for achieving a particular result” according to freedictionary.com.
Satificing is not about not striving to be perfect. In this video, I share how I had to satisfice this weekend when I attended the Refresh + U = Fabulous Conference for Women in Atlanta.
