When dealing with a problem or potential opportunity, do you bog yourself down in details, tweaking, brainstorming, researching, anything and everything ... except just getting on with it? If yes, you are suffering from a modern work place "disease" known as: analysis paralysis.
It refers to over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation, so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome. A decision can be treated as over-complicated, with too many detailed options, resulting in NATO (no action, talk only).
As a consultant, I design reports such as cash flow, financial models, KPI, debtor aging, stock movement etc etc to assist clients in monitoring their business. Reports are necessary but over-dependent and over-analyse can be disastrous. Executives lost common sense and gut feel of the business. They no longer able to manage the business without reports or refuse to take action until all data are analysed. "Nothing but perfection be may spelled paralysis" Winston Churchill. Take action, prevent or cure this disease - urgently.
