Are you wasting energy spinning in indecision?
What decision are you stalling on?
You have a decision to make and you’re stalling. You’re weighing the options, hemming and hawing. Maybe you’re waking up at 3 am and thinking about it some more. You’re thinking about it when people you care about are talking. It distracts you in the middle of your day. You’re worried you’ll make the wrong choice, and then what? What will that mean? What will people say?
How much time and energy is delaying the decision taking with each passing moment? Are you being a perfectionist-procrastinator?
In the past may have chosen to spend a lot of time in the research/consulting phase (AKA procrastination in disguise), seeking answers from:
👨👨👧👦 Friends or Family
🧑🏽🤝🧑🏽 Colleagues or Neighbours
🐶 The family pet
♋ Your horoscope (my personal favourite, a celestial procrastination excuse)
🎱 A magic 8 ball (yes, you’ll even trust a novelty toy before you trust yourself.)
But what if there were no wrong decisions? When you see every decision as leading to a data point, it’s easier to decide between choices and go forward with curiosity about what you might learn from your choice. Imagine the impact of that, how much more quickly you might experience the changes you really want because you’ve liberated yourself from the need to be perfect.
At Kickstartology Coaching, we teach you how to decide with what you know now, at this moment. You’ll learn to trust your inner knowing and make decisions quickly and with confidence. Think of all the time you’ll save not spinning in mind drama! Start collecting data sooner, rather than later!
Be it deciding to go to bed at a reasonable time or choosing between two big life decisions, our Alignment Framework applies to everything. What’s the decision you’re resisting making because you are nervous about the impact of the change?
How cool would it be if six months from now you were on the other side of that decision and you no longer lost sleep worrying if it was the right one? Imagine the feeling of experimentation and evaluation over judgement. Imagine the freedom of the decision no longer weighing you down. Now picture the results. Ready to decide?

Midlife Women are a Hot Topic I’m 50 and I’ve been noticing all of the hype about women getting older and owning it. And while I love the fact that midlife women aren’t invisible anymore and people are learning what perimenopause is, there’s something about the...
