While following new products introduced in yesterday's Apple event, I could see people on twitter easily making decisions to buy one or more. The thought process seems easy; you like something and you can afford it so you buy it.
That's not the case with me; unfortunately, I have a very hard time making purchase decisions. Sometimes I go ahead and make the purchase in the end, but most of the time I bail and think my life will be ok without the thing I wanted to buy.
This year I started managing my finances and keeping aside some guilt-free money that I can use to buy anything I want. 2 months before end of 2018 and I still haven't used much of it.
My current struggle is whether or not I should get a road bike. I bought a cheap mountain bike a few months ago, and Iuse it to ride in the desert trails around Sahl Hasheesh since the place is lovely for mountain biking. However, since I tried this road bike a few days ago I fell in love.
I'm also planning to work with a local cycling center as a tour guide which will require me riding a road bike for 40+Kms every week. The place will provide me with the bike during my trips, and they'll let me use it for my own training as well. However, I don't feel very comfortable borrowing such an expensive bike and riding it around. That's why I want to buy my own.
If my wife for example would ask me whether she should buy a thing she likes, I'd tell her "If you can afford it, don't already have something similar, and will enjoy it; then why not?", but when it comes to me I struggle a lot and I can't figure out why.
Do you have the same problem or something similar? Let me know what you think.
