Analysis Paralysis

There’s a careful balance between being paralyzed by analysis and counting the cost before moving forward.

General George S. Patton Jr. said, “A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week.”

How true in our lives. Certainly, it is wise to know the cost of the journey before we embark. However, when we allow the analysis phase to hold us back, we often end up taking no action at all.

Be wise. Count the cost. But also choose to move forward.

Taking action will reveal options that analysis will never find.

What are you paralyzed by? What are you allowing to hold you back as you, “wait to make a decision”? Are you operating out of fear – FOMO?
