Ep193: Actionable Clarity

27 minutes

Overwhelmed with all the plates you have to keep spinning as an entrepreneur? It might be time to examine some of those plates and see which ones you don’t actually need to be spinning. 

Why is that important for business? 

In business, you have a lot of decisions and things you need to be aware of, and all of them have a weight. But sometimes, you are worrying about things further down the decision tree that won’t actually come up if you make some of the more pressing decisions. It can help with overwhelm to examine all of the decisions you have weighing on your mind and consider which ones you actually need to make right now. 

It might also be true, in pandemic times, that you have some degree of planning apathy because you can’t possibly know what’s coming at all. In that case, you might just need to examine what you do have some degree of control over and focus there. 

It can be hard to see when you are stuck in either end of the continuum, though, which is why you need some outside help sometimes – it’s difficult to read the label from inside the bottle. What you need is clarity on what actions you can take, because paralysis (either from planning apathy or overwhelm) is rarely a valuable place to stay in. Even if the action you decide to take first is rest or intentional inaction.

It is important to find actionable clarity so that you aren’t stuck in paralysis.
