[Question] Is ‘satificing’ optimisation?

It seems to me that the behavioural science research around ‘the trade-off between maximising and satisficing’ in terms of well-being relates with human beings being ‘optimisers’ only sometimes. Also, it seems to suggests that there can be alternative and better approaches to optimisation? Is this true? Or is ‘satisficing’ just a hidden multi-objective optimisation that factors in time and effort costs?

See what trigger my question: A decision-maker’s dilemma: search for the best option or settle for ‘good enough’?
