We've all heard it.
If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.
Yea yea yea. But here's the thing. There comes a moment in any project, paper, or decision when you know you've gathered all the info you need.
- One more conversation won't help significantly.
- One more web search won't help significantly.
- One more article, blog or youtube video won't help significantly.
The only thing left to do is...
make a decision
Stop talking about it. Stop "processing" it. Stop thinking about it.
If you are the point where you know you've gathered 90% of the helpful information possible, make the call.
Planning can be the worst form of procrastination.
Now use your time gained to move another project to the decision point.
