let there be lights

December 13, 2011 5:59 pm Published by

In a profound sense every man has two halves to his being; he is not one person so much as two persons trying to act in unison.  I believe that in the heart of each human being there is something which I can only describe as a “child of darkness” who is equal and complementary to the more obvious “child of light.”  ~Laurens van der Post

hey jealousy

December 5, 2011 7:04 pm Published by

Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!
Bob Marley

Jealousy is poison. It is also a good indicator of where we need to take some sort of action in our lives. We tend to be jealous about things that we feel we lack and aren’t truly making an effort to change. Jealousy requires action. Look at the people you envy and truly ask yourself “what is it they have that you want?” and then, what is one step you could take towards having something of your own?

paralysis of analysis

December 1, 2011 9:00 pm Published by

I over think! I even over think thinking! The thing that has helped me the most with this is simply trying to focus on the letter ‘B’ ( I even write it on my hand to remember ) typically I go from A and “think” of Z and it becomes so overwhelming that I do NOTHING! I have gotten the advice that everyday I can ask myself if I can go to ‘B’ today. This is helping me take steps to meaningful goals that I had put on the back burner all because of analysis paralysis. Just Bee!

The term “analysis paralysis” or “paralysis of analysis” 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, 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.

The phrase describes a situation where the opportunity cost of decision analysis exceeds the benefits that could be gained by enacting some decision, or an informal or non-deterministic situation where the sheer quantity of analysis overwhelms the decision-making process itself, thus preventing a decision. The phrase applies to any situation where analysis may be applied to help make a decision and may be a dysfunctional element of organizational behavior. This is often phrased as paralysis by analysis, in contrast to extinct by instinct (making a fatal decision based on hasty judgment or a gut-reaction).
