Procrastination comes in many sneaky forms, and one of those sneaky ways is long, drawn-out decision making processes.
That’s right: Spinning out on decisions and spending tons of time hemming and hawing is actually procrastination. I didn’t used to know this!
The #1 reason that people struggle to make decisions is that they think there’s a right or wrong decision.
They fear making the wrong decision, so they make no decision at all. (Which is actually a decision, just for the record.)
Can you relate?
That’s step one: Entertain the idea that there’s no right or wrong decision; just the decision that you make, love, and go all in on.
