I’ve been struct by the paralyzing force – – the incapacitating nature – – of indecision. Acts such as looking for the best job, the perfect partner, or the optimal career path in college can lead to emotional debilitation and immobilization. Sometimes, people are mired down by numerous imperfect options, and subsequently choose nothing. “Paralysis by analysis.” No taking action; only finding stagnation.
Choosing an imperfect path may be uncomfortable, yet it is an important step toward learning what you like, what you don’t, and how to move forward. Making a decision and learning from it also teaches us of our amazing capacities to be more than we may have anticipated we could be.
“Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you will regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.” – – H. axon Brown, Jr.
