Are you in the research trap?

Do you need to find out one more thing before you start?

Research is often used as a shield to hide behind, to buy time because of the fear of taking action.

No doubt that if you’re creating something that has life and death consequences then you need to conduct as much research as possible, but that’s rarely the case for most people.

Yes, research is necessary, but too much can actually be intimidating.

The good thing is that ALL the research doesn’t have to be done upfront, in fact it’s probably better that you make it part of your process since information can change with time.

If you’ve really been moved to start something new and have been endlessly researching how to do it then take the first step. Get out of the research trap because you’ll learn so much from the action you take.
