204 - The Perils of Overthinking and Underdoing
Manage episode 354649974 series 1097793
Today we’re looking at something we see happen to a lot of business owners. Especially when you’re moving into new territory.
For example, if you’ve never done a webinar before, or you’ve never paid for traffic before, or you’re launching a new product or service that’s different to what you’ve done before.
And that is to OVER think and UNDER do!
This approach comes with plenty of perils…
Because new territory, while full of potential and opportunity, can also become a big hole we get stuck in when we OVERTHINK things to the point where we aren’t taking enough ACTION.
Feeling like we have to “know more” or “have more planned out” or “get things perfect” before we start, can put us in a loop of procrastination and second guessing that can lead us to doing more work than we need to, delaying getting the results we want and, in many case, even prevent us from getting the results we want.
In this episode, your hosts, Suzi Dafnis and Michelle Falzon share their top tips for getting out of “analysis paralysis” and shifting into a more action oriented approach.
