Stop Overthinking It, The 5 Minute Rule

You are picking a new template for your email newsletter and suddenly realize that you have been looking at options for the last 2 hours.  Sound familiar?

We are all classic over thinkers.

It happens to me too.  I will agonize over things for hours, days, weeks even.

The moment I realize that I am stuck in a cul-de-sac of indecision though, I immediately stop look at the clock and give myself 5 minutes to make a decision.

For some of you, that may make your shoulders tense, but stay with me.

We are all afraid of making the wrong choice or worrying that maybe we could have made a better one. Life is about making the best choice that you can, with the information you have at that moment.  So make a decision and move on.

You can always make adjustments along the way.

What have you been procrastinating on? Challenge yourself to the 5 minute rule. Stretch it to 15 if you need to, but get going and move on.
