Conquer "Analysis Paralysis"
We face countless choices daily, both trivial and important. Regardless of the importance, however, making decisions requires mental energy—it can be exhausting. It’s not surprising, then, that we might feel indecisive about even the smallest things.
Here are some popular decision-making tips to try if you find yourself struggling.
Reduce your options. Choosing from ten menu items is harder than choosing among three. Reduce your potential options and you can reduce your decision stress. Try just picking items from one menu section.
Be methodical. Following a series of steps to make sure you’re not forgetting something can be useful. This plan (Ask For A Discount: It may seem odd to ask for a discount from your medical provider, but it can’t hurt. If you can afford to pay off your debt in a lump sum, let your provider know the timeframe in which you can pay and they may offer a discount.), from researchers at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, outlines seven steps of effective decision making.
Create a deadline. To avoid waffling on a decision until it’s no longer relevant, set yourself a deadline. If you haven’t decided by that date, you can tell yourself what that means (i.e., if you haven’t decided that you are going to an event, decide that that means you aren’t going).
Try out common decision-making methods. Flipping a coin or writing a pros and cons list may be just the trick you need to get you out of an indecisive rut. And, if you’re unhappy with the result of a coin toss, your gut may be pointing you toward the choice you actually want to make.
Learn from the outcomes, good and bad. No one is perfect, and even if we follow guidelines for making sound decisions they can still not work out how we’d hoped. Review the results of your decisions later for insights to help you make better decisions in the future. We face countless choices daily, both trivial and important.

It’s important to keep in mind that overthinking a choice until the option is no longer available is a decision in and of itself—you’re choosing not to decide.
That may not seem so bad if the question is what you’d like for dinner, but it can also lead to a career or relationship stalling. Most experts agree that making the wrong decision can be better than making no decision. At least you are moving forward!
