Analysis Paralysis

Do you have trouble starting a project because it seems too big to tackle? If there are several options, do you have trouble choosing the best one or any one at all? Do you not even know where to look to find the place to start? 


I have this issue all the time. I have so many things I want todo in my business like blog regularly, write a newsletter, make YouTube videos, get paid speaking gigs and have a full slate of individual coaching clients...and by the way, have a viable website that is updated regularly. All of this is so overwhelming to me that I get nervous just typing about it.

According to Wikipedia, analysis paralysis is when the fear of potential error outweighs the realistic expectation or potential value of success, and this imbalance results in suppressed decision-making in an unconscious effort to preserve existing options. An overload of options can overwhelm the situation and cause this "paralysis", rendering one unable to come to a conclusion. It can become a larger problem when in critical situations where a decision needs to be reached but a person is not able to provide a response fast enough, potentially causing a bigger issue than they would have had they made a decision. 


Does any of this resonate? If it does, read on. I'm going to take a different approach from the one I have taken in the past, because "if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten" - Henry Ford. 


Here's my plan:

Does that sound like rocket science? Of course it doesn't. I'm sure you're saying "no sh*t Sherlock...that's what you're supposed to do". I know that and you know that but execution is not the same as knowing what to do. How do you eat the elephant in front of you? One bite at a time, and that's what I'm going to do, one bite at a time.

What's your elephant?
