....I want to do it right the first time.
....I don't want to waste my effort (time, money) doing it wrong.
....I'm going to quit my job so I need to get it right from day one.
....I'm planning the best way to do it.
....I'm working on designing the perfect farm.
....I'm figuring out exactly how much of the various foods to grow so that I don't have too little of some or too much of others,
....I don't want to make mistakes of buying the wrong livestock (or substitute equipment, farm, land, equipment).
....I only want to build it once.
....I'm looking for the perfect farm (house, land, location).
This is classic Analysis Paralysis.
This affliction seems to be common, at least in the people I've met or talked with. I see people who never get past the planning stage. It's not that they've given up on their dream, it's just that they have to get it perfect before they could even consider moving onto the next step. If course, it's never perfect enough.
Years ago I often hid behind Analysis Paralysis to avoid the discomfort of failure, ridicule, criticism. But about 15 years ago I managed to break out of paralysis. Nowadays I'm more apt to say, "Sure, what the heck. Lets give it a try and see what happens." My current attitude has its downsides too from time to time, but I greatly prefer it to Analysis Paralysis.
