Does figuring out whether you want coffee or tea stress you out? No? What about figuring out what to wear at a party? If you are really struggling to make a decision when you are called to do so, even for the simplest things, the chance is high that you are a very indecisive individual. While being an indecisive person is not necessarily a bad thing, it can be unproductive – not to mention self-destructive.
Most people who are indecisive are also perfectionists and over-analysers, as they are afraid of the possibility that the outcome of their decision won’t be perfect. Since they don’t want to deal with the consequences of their ‘failure’, they become super analytical and hesitate to give out their opinion about anything. Now imagine the impact of your indecisiveness could have on your career and life in general!
If you are an indecisive person and you feel this is getting in your way of actually doing things, try the following techniques:
- Identify and face your fears.
- Get in terms with your emotions.
- Practice on little things.
- Learn to trust yourself.
