Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own. Some people had pointed out some challenges and this person was freaking out a bit.
“We’ve already identified those challenges,” I said. “We’ve diagnosed the issues and we have a strategy to address them,” I continued, “Don’t panic.”
Worry is a useful emotion if it spurs you to look at something critically, to diagnose the problem, to build a solid strategy.
Beyond that it becomes wasted energy and counterproductive.
Decide comes from the Latin root to cut off from. Once you’ve diagnosed the problem and built a strategy to address it, stop worrying. Absolutely look at the results you are getting when executing and question if the strategy is working, but stop questioning the strategy theoretically before you’ve had a chance to execute it and get results.
