Everyone knows that many little steps add up to something big. But that rarely makes it easier to get started.
We often procrastinate out of fear.
Is this the right decision? Will this be worth it? What if I change my mind?
But choices don’t have to be decisions, as Seth Godin notes. A blind rubric for deciding is often more effective than painstakingly analyzing your options, particularly when the stakes are low.
When I’m not sure about if I should try something new or stick with what I know, I err on the side of what’s new. I’m not always thrilled with the outcome, but I always learn something new and I don’t waste time fretting about what if.
