I invite you to learn this productive strategy to use the next time you face analysis paralysis, ambivalence, or fear, regardless of how small or large the context is. You may not use this each time, but the more you do, the more you will re-program yourself to take action.
- Identify your fears in that moment.
- Focus on the truth.
What you will find in-between is the creative space where your higher values meets your capabilities, which are your true options. In that situation, the higher value was doing something that I felt would be a productive and meaningful use of my time. In truth, both would have fit, if I had a more subtle perspective. In the end, I realized I could have done both had I not "over-thought."
Life's priorities might feel like a game of Tetris at times, but I promise if you focus on celebrating what you do accomplish instead of what you do not accomplish, you will find yourself taking action and going out on a limb verses standing at the base of the tree, analyzing the dichotomy of what you really want (that piece of fruit) and where you feel you are in the moment.
