How to Beat Analysis Paralysys

β€œIt’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.”
― Roy E. Disney

If you ever get stuck in a neverending analysis paralysis loop, and can’t make a decision, try this:

  1. Prioritize your problem.
  2. Ask yourself, “Which decision is best for my top priority?”
  3. Go with the answer.

For instance, if you’re shopping for a new sleeping bag, your top priority might be weight. Go with the lightest option. Or maybe your top priority is comfort. Choose the most comfortable sleeping bag.

Problem solved.
