When you have to make a decision, too much information is as bad as not enough.
If you drill down too deeply into a problem, you’re likely to unearth a whole load of data that may influence your decision to one degree or another.
An oversupply of information usually leads to analysis paralysis, a state in which you’re pulled in so many different directions simultaneously, you lose clarity of thought.
Tough decisions take courage and self-belief. Weigh up your options. Test them if you can and seek advice from people who don’t have a stake in the outcome.
