Paralysis by Analysis

It’s easy to get caught up in deep analysis of our plans to change our lives. It’s also easy to not realize how we are often paralyzed by the over-analysis, and how much time this action-stalling thought process steals from us.

Avoid paralysis by analysis. Don’t get too caught up in the analysis of your plan. Just have a specific intent, a specific destination, and start moving. Adjustments can be made along the way. Making changes in your life is like driving a stick-shift car; the hardest part is to get the initial gear and begin motion. After that, life is more forgiving for adjustments. So, determine the direction and get moving!
