According to Wikipedia Paralysis of Analysis is "A decision can be treated as over-complicated, with too many detailed options, so that a choice is never made, rather than try something and change if a major problem arises. A person might be seeking the optimal or “perfect” solution upfront, and fear making any decision which could lead to erroneous results, when on the way to a better solution."
“Motivation is the driving force which causes us to achieve goals. Motivation is said to be intrinsic or extrinsic. The term is generally used for humans but, theoretically, it can also be used to describe the causes for animal behavior as well. This article refers to human motivation. According to various theories, motivation may be rooted in a basic need to minimize physical pain and maximize pleasure, or it may include specific needs such as eating and resting, or a desired object, goal, state of being, ideal, or it may be attributed to less-apparent reasons such as altruism, selfishness, morality, or avoiding mortality. Conceptually, motivation should not be confused with either volition or optimism.1 Motivation is related to, but distinct from, emotion.”
Notice it said is distinct from emotion!
I find myself going thru this very same thing. I think and think and never get anything done. Here is a great t-shirt to get you motivated to “Stop asking why and get to work”
This would make a great team tshirt for corporations and team building skills workshop attendees
