Name the Fears: What are you really afraid of? What is the worst thing that could happen? And if something bad happens then what? How could you manage it? Basically you need to write down the fear and identify the possible outcomes and work out the worse case scenarios. Vanzant states “if you simply identify the fear, figure out a way to deal with it if it should come true—you remove its power to control your decision making.”
Forget the “Shoulds”: Stop trying to worry about what other people think you “should” do and focus your attention on what you need to do. Once you concentrate on what needs to be done, your ideas and judgment becomes clearer.
If possible, Wait it out: If you can, try to wait another day or two before making a big decision. Sometimes time (and a good night’s rest) can help you get a better hold of the facts.
Avoid Analysis Paralysis: Sometimes over thinking a decision is the main cause of indecision. If that is the case, a simple solution to help you figure it out is to write down the pros and cons down on a piece of paper. Seeing the pros and cons in black and white helps clarify the facts and get you crystal clear on your answer.
