Ep #72: Analysis Paralysis? Here’s How to Get Unstuck

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | Analysis Paralysis? Here's How to Get Unstuck

I’ve been having many conversations lately with lawyers who are experiencing the same conundrum, two of whom used the exact same language to describe the problem they’re having: analysis paralysis. 


Analysis paralysis feels like ruminating over an idea, wondering if there’s a right or wrong decision to be made, and leaves you unable to move forward. You might push that decision-making into the future with hopes of a clearer answer then, but the truth is making that decision often doesn’t get easier with time. Sometimes, it makes taking decisive action to align with what you want harder.


If you too have a decision that’s weighing heavily on your mind, whether that’s related to work, family planning, relationships, or anything else, I’m offering you three strategies to help you get unstuck from analysis paralysis. You’ll discover how to evaluate the reasons you’re currently weighing options, and 7 key questions to ask yourself to gain visibility on what calls to you.
