Stress and indecision

Bobb Biehl says that 85% of stress is caused by either indecision or lack of control.

What three things are causing you the most stress right now? Of those three, which are stressful because of indecision? Lack of control?

If it’s indecision, the way forward is to act. Decide and move or collect the additional information you need to make the decision.

If it’s an area of life that’s out of control, brainstorm how you can get that area back under control (or even a small section of it), and take a step forward today.*

 

*Some things we stress about we have no control over even if we wanted it. Letting go of anxiety about things we cannot control is a topic for another post.
