Audio: Overcoming Analysis Paralysis - How to make effective decisions

Earlier this month I participated in Dr. Kari Miller's "Closing the Intention Gap" event, where 18 productivity experts gave talks on how to close the gap between what you intend to do and what you actually get done. My topic was "Analysis Paralysis: How to Make Decisions More Effectively".  Here's the promo copy:

You’re working on an important project.  Things are moving along and you’re in the zone. But then you have to make a decision where the best choice isn’t obvious. The whole universe opens up before you.  Now, instead of one path to follow, there are dozens. What do you do?  If you’re like many people, you become overwhelmed and go into avoidance mode. You procrastinate. Welcome to analysis paralysis.

But by using Beth’s strategies, you’ll be able to get back in control, get moving, and get stuff done. In this presentation you will learn:

  • How to recognize when you’re stuck in analysis paralysis
  • A clear cut process for making your very best decision in a reasonable amount of time
  • How to know when a decision is “good enough”
  • What to do when you’ve done all that and still can’t decide

Although the event is over, you can hear the audio from my presentation by clicking here.  It starts right after a brief (< 1 minute) introduction from Kari.  Enjoy!
