5 Entrepreneurial Secrets for Overcoming Indecision

At one time or another, everyone struggles with indecision. Entrepreneurs share ways to work past these challenges.

Question: What is one secret you have for overcoming indecision?

Determine Desired Outcomes

"I'm getting better at trusting my gut, going for it, and taking massive rapid action on decisions. This one was more difficult for me as I tend to be very analytical. Once the outcome you're looking for is established and you know 'why' you're doing it, ditch the 'how' and go for it. Many of us get stuck in the 'how' and all the reasons we think we 'can't' can keep you in paralysis mode."


Remind Yourself to Trust Your Gut

"Forget about what others think and trust yourself, stay positive and motivated. I like to ask those who encourage me their thoughts. But at the end of the day, I remind myself that I know me and my vision best. With that, I try to think about how each choice might play out in 10 years and then forge forward with conviction."


Phone a Friend

"Usually being clear on my mission, active priorities, time commitments and financial budgeting allows for easy decision making. But occasionally an uncertainty will arise. Thankfully I have a support group of mentors, friends and colleagues. I call on members of this group when I need to resolve something. My close relationship with them means I usually get a quick and simple answer."


Focus on Your End Goal

"If you know what your end goal is, it's a lot easier making decisions. First, I think about whether or not it will help me get where I want to go and/or help me achieve my goals. If it does, I then analyze the risk factor. I have found this to be an easy way to make most business decisions."


Flip a Coin

"When I am making difficult decisions for my business, I always try to reference my knowledge and follow my gut. In order to do this, if I am still indecisive, I typically flip a coin or use a random number generator. This forces me to make a quick decision rather than directly determining my actions."
