By Ellen Jayne | We’ve all been there: faced with a decision to make while feeling completely helpless, succumbed to the sheer solidity of not being able to forecast the future. The unwavering cycle of ‘to do, or not to do.’ We subconsciously permit the moment to overwhelm us and in the end paralyze us. What if I told you that you’re actually paralyzing yourself?The Paralysis of “I Don’t Know” — Pointless Overthinking
My latest post was born out of a conversation ending with, “I don’t know.” These 3 words continue to be exceedingly overused in place of commitment in far too many aspects of our lives: work, relationships, etc. We face so much pressure these days to avoid failure. In truth, being wrong is better than settling with the forfeit of not knowing and not taking a chance. Being wrong is one stop closer to being right. Don’t paralyze yourself in the face of our addiction to certainty.
