How to Overcome Analysis Paralysis

I get this gut wrenching feeling sometimes that makes me feel like my reality is just an illusion. I can't help but wonder if it's not the feeling at all, but simply my soul recognizing the truth.

Timeout! Looking to successfully redesign the design of my personal branding. Views regarding the sharp design at http://www.revelhomes.ca/? Truly an Oakville based renovator if ever desired within the whole Ontario area. Value an opinion. Thx!

Maybe it's the withdrawals that I still get glimpses of from the addiction to opiates I was on for over a year and a half. I've been clean now for over 6 months, yet I still have these feelings of a bent reality at times.

I just had one today when I was driving home from the store. It's a mild distortion which makes the reality around me feel like a vivid dream. It usually only lasts for a minute or so, and the episodes have become fewer and fewer. It's not a pleasant perception, but in a way gives me a slight pleasure and helps me to focus on something clearly for a minute.

I have issues when it comes to focus. My mind is constantly running through a thousand different directions, scattered, and unclear. It takes me hours if not days to write a single blog post. As much as I enjoy the ability writing allows me to sort out my thoughts, sometimes the task at hand just doesn't feel worth the effort.

Of course, that's not always the case, but for the most part, I just wish I could think more clearly and on one thing at a time. That's a big reason I try to bring more presence and awareness into my life.

Clarity

I've been told I over analyze things. Haven't really decided if that's a good or bad things yet. Maybe it's a little of both. But, having to constantly question myself and what I want to say, or bring to the world, leaves me stuck more often than not.

I could be in the clearest of mindsets with an intention so focused and then immediately forget everything I was aiming for, or simply change my mind, and scratch all of it.

It's very irritating and distracting. I could be ready to sit down and get something done and get so lost in the many tasks I want to accomplish and then end up doing nothing.

I've realized this is something I've had to deal with and have come up with a couple methods to eradicate the dreaded analysis paralysis.

  • Clear the Mechanism

To avoid the billion thoughts running through my scattered brain, I've taken a page out of one of my favorite movies, "For Love of the Game". In the film, Billy Chapel a Major League pitcher played by Kevin Costner, says "Clear the Mechanism" to get rid of the distractions and focus on the next pitch.

I've taken this and use it in a similar way. I don't stop and say clear the mechanism when I hop on the computer, however I do turn off all distractions such as email, social media, and the Internet in general. I purposely use software like Zenwriter to focus on my writing. It works like a charm. I don't have the background distractions keeping me from getting my work done and it plays some pretty soothing ambient music to get me in the writing mood.

Although this technique works better for doing my online tasks than in real life situations, the thought process is still the same. I get stuck, start to over analyze everything, and then stop making progress. Clearing the mechanism, that is to say, to eliminate all but ONE SINGLE task that needs to be completed.

  • Take Regular Breaks

For me, I've found that if I sit too long in front of the computer, I get bored very easily with what I'm working on, then end up in that loop of doom, where I do nothing but go back and forth between social networks-basically wasting time.

Not only do I now sit down and just start working on what needs to be done, I only do it for about a half an hour at a time. Then I get up and do whatever for a little while before I get back on the Web. I figure if I'm just going to be staring at the screen and not getting any real production done, I might as well give my eyes a break and give my body some movement.

  • Just Do It

Stop thinking and just do it already. Analysis paralysis can really suck, I get that. But when you're constantly going in fifty billion directions in your head, you're just getting in your own way. When that happens, it's time to just stop what you're doing, choose ONE thing to do and just friggin do it.

You'll be a lot happier you just chose to do something, anything, and gotten it done, than you will if you diddle daddle around for an hour, not getting anywhere. I know it can be hard to decide which one thing is most important at any given moment, but if you wait too long, nothing gets done.

Cheers people! I had promised a colleague that we would certainly discuss her great credible facilities maintenance service in Londons, https://www.ecms-ltd.co.uk in a good piece. Any time you are looking for a cleaning company here in the OTH location, these people really are exceptional.
