How to Avoid Analysis Paralysis

I don’t know if you know anything about the Navaho Native American Indians? They weave these beautiful rugs. The colours are fantastic and the designs are beautiful. They have been weaving these rugs for thousands of years. In each rug though they leave a minute knot and imperfection and they do this on purpose.

When asked why they leave that knot in the rug the answer is always the same – the same as it has been for a thousand years. They say that they leave the knot, that imperfection, so that the gods don’t think they are trying to be a god themselves.

Perfectionism is great when you use it when and where you chose, but uncontrolled perfectionism can result in the inability to finish anything, and in some cases even to start things! Analysis Paralysis.

Learning to identify and use the various parts of yourself for your own benefit and well being is incredibly valuable. Call me if you are interested in knowing more.
