Are you at a crossroad right now? In my quest to learning more about myself, I realized I am infected by a certain disease: Analysis Paralysis. Ever heard of that? It is when you take so much time thinking, planning and analyzing that you end up accomplishing nothing in the end.
I analyze every aspect before stepping forward or making a decision. That is if I ever make a decision. Because mostly, I stop at just analyzing and waiting for the perfect condition before ever making a move.
You know, nothing wrong with analyzing or planning. In fact, this is necessary when you are making a decision BUT it is detrimental if you don’t move towards your goal because you think too much!
Here’s what you need to know. Even the Bible tells us that waiting for the perfect condition won’t do you good.
If you wait for the perfect condition, you will not get anything done.
Wow, that was just too straight-forward, huh?
If you are at the crossroad far too long, hear me out. Time will pass. 1 week. 1 month. 1 year. You will someday look at today and think to yourself, “Why did I not make a decision earlier?”
Never too late, Buddy! Stop thinking about failing. Stop thinking you will make a mistake. Stop being afraid of those things. Because actually, you got to expect them. Expect failures and mistakes. In real life, there is no perfection.
What are you trying to decide on?
Are you still waiting for that perfect moment?

It took us four years before deciding to get a house for our family. Despite the funds being available, we were just so scared because it’s a big commitment – so we kept looking at the different what ifs. By the time we finally purchased our own property, we wished we had done it sooner! During the time we spent waiting, we purchased unnecessary items. If we started paying off the lot earlier, we would’ve been done by now. So I agree, although it’s good to plan, we can’t wait for the conditions to be perfect when jumping in. One question my husband and I always ask each other when we are faced with a decision is: What would you do if you weren’t afraid? (from Who Moved My Cheese?)
I love that! What would you do if you weren’t afraid =D
