make up one's mind

Decide between alternatives, come to a decision, as in I had trouble making up my mind about which coat I liked best. This expression dates from the early 1800s, although a similar usage appeared two centuries earlier in Shakespeare's King John (2:1): "I know she is not for this match made up."
