My First Blog Entry: "Recovering From Analysis Paralysis"

Thanks to some recent encouragement from a friend, I am finally making my first blog entry.  (I have only been talking about doing it for a year!)

It would be convenient to blame being busy for my delay in beginning this blog, but the truth is that I blame it on being crazy.  :) 

I am a chronic over-analyzer. This characteristic serves me well in my profession as a marketing researcher and brand strategist, but it can also cause me to think myself into a corner where I feel I cannot take action. This is referred to as analysis paralysis.

Analysis paralysis is really annoying and can take a great idea or good intention and suffocate it. I have a notebook full of blog topics that were never written, because I allowed my over-analyzing to create self-doubt, which ultimately kept me from moving forward.  So…no more.

I am committing myself to this blog, because I want the opportunity to share thoughts, information and ideas that might help someone else live a more balanced, healthy and happy life. It is a simple goal, so I am going to stop over-complicating it and get busy.

With that in mind, are there goals in your life that you are passionate about but have not been pursued because you keep making excuses? Maybe you want to get in better shape. Perhaps you want to change your career. Or, maybe you just want to take on a new hobby.

Whatever it is, I ask you to take a small step in the direction of where you want to go.  If you want to get in better shape, you don’t have to turn your diet upside down overnight and run a marathon tomorrow. You can begin by eating a balanced breakfast or investing 20- 30 minutes of your day doing cardio. A comfortable walk is a step in the right direction. You will be surprised at how one change, not matter how small it is, can create the momentum you need to make big change.

For me, it began with one word typed today. Now I feel like I am on a roll…

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy." - Dale Carnegie



  1. Wow! You really have some good thoughts and advice! Imagine that, lol.
    Thanks Jaime!

  2. God have been very kind to me, despite the hard times he made me go through but now I give him all the praise for relieving my mum of her stroke through the help of an herbal doctor by name Uwadia Amenifo. Helen Smith is my name, and we live in England. My mum was diagnosed of stroke eight months ago, and she was in so many pains as she can’t even walk, go to rest room, or move her body. She even has to excrete in her body most times. I am her only child, and I so much love my mum because my dad died when I was 4 years old. So I grew up in the hands of only my mum without fatherly care. It happened that when she was diagnosed of stroke by our family doctor her condition was still good by then, but in just one month after her diagnoses, her condition became very worst that the doctor then said her stroke is acute and no longer partial. And that it will only take God’s intervention for her to be well again and for her to be able to retain the full use of her brain. So her ailment continues until God intervened before God’s intervention, I have carried her to so many churches for prayers and have traveled very far to look for a cure for her. I Travelled to America to see some doctors if they can help even if its surgery they can carry out on her provided she don’t die, because I really needed her around me. It was in America an Endocrinologist by name Jill Marie Abelseth MD from Albany, NY told me about an herbal doctor who she knows of, that have successfully cured stroke/ human parasites. So she advised me to contact the herbalist, so I contacted him, and explained to him what my mum is going through, so he counseled us and asked few questions about my mum which I told him. So he prepared the herbs, and shipped it to me in England. I gave my mum the herbs just as he has instructed, and just exactly as he said that his herbs will totally cure my mum. His herbs really worked perfectly well, and cured my mum. As I write this testimony my mum is totally cured of her stroke and she has started her normal business as usual. So I want all here to help me thank Doctor Uwadia Amenifo for his great help in helping me cure my mum of her stroke with his herbal medicine. Please if you know of anyone who have stroke or who have one disease or the other and his/her doctor says there’s no cure to that disease please I want that person to contact doctor Uwadia Amenifo, and give him a try. His contacts are Email ( his number is (+2349052015874), Thanks.
