Today, I read a rather interesting article titled, 'Why so many people can't make decisions'. The article is on the WSJ - unfortunately, I cannot post a link on this forum.
Recently, I have found myself procrastinating with just about everything that I do - life decisions, work, chores, etc. Reading this article shed some light on exactly why I behave the way that I do.
I know in my mind that I possess great potential. I have the ability, the sense, and the support to accomplish just about anything I want. However, my ambivalence is preventing me from attaining my true potential. I find myself debating choices for so long that I forget to act on them. I overanalyze the advantages and disadvantages of all of the choices I have to make and often end up just not making a choice because I can't pick between the two. I realize that this is something I must overcome in order to attain my true potential and prevent being resentful for the rest of my life.
The question is, how the heck does one overcome ambivalence? Or, at least, how can I eliminate the effects of my ambivalent thinking?
