MBA1905 Q&A Wednesday: How do I not second guess myself and make a decision?

Decisions can be like quicksand. If you’re not careful, you can get stuck in a place where the more you do, the more trapped you become.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and one of our listeners has a classic problem: they’re a big-time second guesser, never quite comfortable with their own decisions —  even long after the fact. And as their business grows, so do the potential consequences of “analysis paralysis.”

Is second-guessing a habit that can be broken? If so, how?

Today, we share the one key to getting over this syndrome. We’ll discuss why self-doubt happens, and how to get over it. With examples from our own experience, we’ll present a different way of looking at decision-making — one that changes your relationship to it.

Get more comfortable with your own decisions, permanently. Click Play!
