Procrastination and putting off making a decision is so often linked to a fear of making a mistake. That by choosing, you may choose the wrong direction and have to experience regret and loss. But with every choice and opportunity we take, we are closing the door to some other possibilities and we have to face those limits and losses. A choice is better than no choice, because even if it turns out to be a mistake new learning has occurred that can further inform your next choice. Spinning in circles trying to analyse how to make the perfect choice, keeping options open and by not choosing you end up just teetering on the edge of life. As C.G. Jung said “The right way to wholeness is made up of fateful detours and wrong turnings”.
