  • Make up your mind!
  • There are two schools of thought on this, but its tough not to procrastinate
  • Maybe you should just pick something and go with your gut, but then again....
  • What's the point? You won't be able to decide if the advice is good or not?
  • I don't know I can't decide.. ;-)
  • You have to be brave. I was a shocker at restaurants, I could usually manage to pick an entree fairly quickly, but it could take me over half and hour to pick a main. Frustrating for the waiter or waitress and also my dining partners who where HUNGRY. But that is only one example of "it". So to make it better and less a problem. You have to be brave. PICK ONE. That's it. When faced with choices, pick one and do it. Shut your eyes go forward, pick one. Now sometimes you are going to make a less than optimal decision or in other words a mistake! Well, part of being indecisive is the worry of making that mistake. LIVE WITH IT. And don't look back second guessing yourself, hindsight is perfect, we humans aren't! To start, limit yourself to a maximum of FIVE minutes of internal debate and then say (in the words of Andy, a character from Little Britian comedy show), "I want that one." Go for it, do it. It does get easier and it is okay to debate some of the really BIG decisions, but all the small everyday things, what to eat, where to eat, what to wear - just pick one option and go there and eat that while wearing this! Above all DECIDE.
  • S..T OR GET OFF THE P.T..NO ONE WILL WAIT FOR YOU, YOU WILL DIE ALONE, DON'T END UP ALONE, WAKE UP...
  • breakdown your options and trust your past decisions, which helped you along the way
  • Start small, like planning a meal, or what clothes go with what outfit, then work your way up to more important things.
  • Put it in writing. Make a short list of the pros and cons and go with the pros.
  • OK, I seem to attract indecisive people. Really its horrible... all of my best friends are indecisive. So my advice is have pity for your friends and make some decisions every once in awhile. Its the worst when you are going to see a movie and all you keep saying is... I don't know, I can't decide... It's miraculous if we even decide to go see the movie in the first place. AND on top of me just being frustruated with you. We waste so much time TRYING to decide things that we never actually get to DO anything. AND so I decide to make some decisions every once and while and you get mad at me... hmmm... I wonder why?
  • Im not sure.... what do you think :-p
  • Make a decision and stick to it.
  • Well, I think if they uh....no, it would be better if....erm...hang on,....ok, this is what I think...I think they should...er....or maybe not...I don't know...can you decide what to say for me...? JamesD;-)
  • SORRY IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE HARSH..I GUESS I AM JUST A TO THE POINT PERSON..IT IS WHAT I WAS ADVISED BY MY FATHER WHEN I WAS 20 ..HUMMM GUESS HE WAS HARSH ? BUT IT GOT ME OFF MY BUT AND STOPPED ME AT A TIME I NEEDED IT TO WAKE UP AND STEP BACK UP TO LIFE AFTER MY HUSBAND COMMITED SUICIDE..SOMETIMES REALITY IS HARSH.
  • - Keep in mind that once you've made a choice you will soon know whether it was the right one or not. - Trust your gut feeling - Use your previous choices as guidance
  • If you choose not to decide, You still have made a choice.
  • Believe in your own self worth and ability to make good choices. Trust yourself and be courageous. Make your decision after a short analysis of the problem. Make a time limit for yourself. Try to make a list of possibilities with pros and cons for each one. Listen carefully to what your heart is telling you and figure out what appeals to you the most. Once you've figured it out, be purposeful in following the steps to get that thing accomplished. Don't scatter your energy pursuing lots of different options at the same time. Focus. :) I learned most of this from The Virtues Guide for Educators - no I did not write it but it is a really great book to read. :) Good luck! You can do it! I believe in you! :)
  • Encouragement is the key to help indecisive people to overcome their Fear of making mistake. The more dicision they make, the more confident they become and the less mistake they'll eventually make. Ask them 2 questions: that is the worst that could happen if you take action? and then what is the best thing that can happen out of this? What ever the answers are, they will find that they are not life threatening. So there is no reason not to act. Another appraoch to help indecisiveness is to be specific with the questions, so to find the accurate answer in the shortest time. Get rid of confusion by getting a clear diseired outcome, just do it immediately, which will eventually lead to the next step! Good luck !
