I was in Mc Donald's, I'm sure that you are familiar with their menu: burgers,
fries, chicken sandwich, filet o fish. That pretty much sums up the options.
The menu has remained consistent for about the last 20 or so years, but for
some reason the person ahead of me just could not decide what to order.
Is that you? Does it take you an extended period of time to make a
seemingly simple decision?
Are you the person who needs to weigh the pros and cons and then weigh the pros

however if you are doing this before you decide on something as simple as what

Here are some the most common ways people procrastinate:
-Always busy but getting nothing accomplished. You have 4 open projects, yet
it's been 3 months and have not launched one. You are self sabotaging. Focus

of, before you decide. News flash, nothing is foolproof, you might still get it
wrong. Stop thinking & move. If you make a mistake learn from it and start
-You need more research. How long do you need to study the market? By the
time you decide to jump in the trend will have moved on without you. Trust
yourself. If you are wrong, see above.
-It's just not the right time. Well tell me this, when is the right time? I'll
wait for an answer. Exactly! There is no perfect time. Never has been. Never
will be. Stop waiting & move before you miss your moment.
The state of indecision will not only drive you crazy it will stifle your
growth.To be successful you will have to take some risk. You are intelligent
enough to make a decision. Trust yourself. Move from your gut and go!
