Failure to Execute

small business counseling

Analysis Paralysis. You’ve heard of this before I’m sure. You’re so busy overanalyzing every detail, possible outcome, etc. that you never actually get started on a project. Happens to alot of people, especially business owners. I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever been accused of analyzing something too much.

Paralysis by Overwhelm is my issue. I have an idea (or many). I start thinking about all of the possibilities, what needs to be accomplished, what should the priorities be….and all of a sudden there is just a cacophony of voices in my head. So I simply walk away.

Both result in failure. I read a great quote that summed up what is truly the issue here.

Failure is not about insecurity. It’s about lack of execution. ~ Jeffrey Gitomer

The explanation of this quote by Eric Wagner was that failure is due to the lack of prioritizing and focus. I don’t know about you, but I’m done with having great ideas but allowing my lack of focus and prioritizing keep me from execution. No matter what it takes to dim the noise; no matter how much it scares and overwhelms me, I am not walking away. I am moving forward!
