175: Fixing Analysis Paralysis
When faced with making a decision you may find yourself with the inability to act due to overthinking the available alternatives and possible outcomes. This is commonly known as analysis paralysis. When you get analysis paralysis with finances, what often happens is you are so worried about making a mistake that you don't do anything at all. The more money you have, the worse this can be. When you don't make a choice to invest, you are making a choice. You're making a choice to invest in cash. If that is not the decision that you want to make, then you need to fix your paralysis. Leaving money sitting in an account earning close to nothing is not going to give you the same long term returns as investing in stocks, bonds, and real estate. Fixing analysis paralysis with your finances starts with having a written investment plan. We talk in more detail about that in this episode so you have a plan on what to do with your money.
