Ep. 91 How to get out of Analysis Paralysis

with Lani Jackson

We know we want some big things from our business, but we’re stuck in this cycle of what do I do next? Should I do this? Should I do that? Because we’re, constantly asking ourselves, ‘What should we do and what should I do next?’ and debating and looking at all the possibilities and all the options, we’re stuck in that cycle. 

We’re not actually taking any action which then prevents us from growth and it prevents us from even knowing what will work and what won’t work, because we’re too busy trying to guess what will and what won’t. 

I want you to get out of this analysis paralysis that you’re stuck in. I want you to remember this resource as a process of how you can get out of analysis paralysis and take action and make things happen.

“90% of the things that I see us getting stuck in analysis paralysis over are not life altering decisions that if they’re not perfect or the exact right one, it’s going to be devastating results.

So you need to give yourself permission to make mistakes and learn from them. Accept the choices. Some choices are just simply stepping stones on your path to success.”
