When pondering a new decision we overinflate what’s needed to make it.
“I don’t have enough information.”
“I need more money.”
“There’s no spare time.”
In an attempt to protect us from the unknown our internal monologue prevents progress.
Of course, a wise person doesn’t jump in unprepared.
But a person too wise never jumps into anything.
There’ll always be more data to digest, cash to stash and time to wish you had.
So the next time you’re struggling to decide, ask yourself:
“What do I really need?”
Because it’s usually less than you think.
