Quotes About Indecisiveness

1. “…indecision is the condition to which we subject ourselves when we do not want to, or cannot decide.” – Joseph Bikart

2. “Indecisiveness can result when we have two desires in conflict with each other – the head/heart opposition is best known, but other binaries are also possible, such as work/play, long-term/short-term or affordability/quality. Careful weighing of true priorities, applying intuition as well as logic, is the optimum way forward.” – Joseph Bikart

3. “Perhaps the “cutting off” of decision making could equally refer to the freedom we gain once we have severed the shackles of indecisiveness and procrastination.” – Joseph Bikart

4. “The purpose of all of this (left hemisphere’s way of choosing denial or repression over considering an anomaly) is to impose stability on behavior and to prevent vacillation because indecisiveness doesn’t serve any purpose. Any decision, so long as it is probably correct, is better than no decision at all. A perpetually fickle general will never win a war.” ― V.S. Ramachandran

5. “However, the most extreme incarnation of indecision must be Ivan Goncharov’s protagonist Oblomov, in the novel of the same name. Oblomov is a young Russian nobleman who, throughout his life, is incapable of making decisions, or engaging in any meaningful activity. As a result, he spends most of his time in his room or his bed, something he blames on a rare form of apathy he calls “oblomovitis”.” – Joseph Bikart

6. “Indecisiveness is the number one reason for failure. Lack of ability to make a decision in a timely manner causes most people to fail with their projects and plans. Identify this challenge and decide to no longer let it be a setback from your success.” ― Farshad Asl

7. “…procrastination – like the broader quality of indecision – can have other sources. One of them is the pursuit of perfection.” – Joseph Bikart

8. “A person’s greatest limitations are not genetic, but imposed by self-doubt, insecurities, indecision, and timidity.” ― Kilroy J. Oldster

9. “Fear of failure is expressed in negative goal-setting, indecisiveness, and fear of adverse consequences” ― Sunday Adelaja

10. “The ultimate defence mechanism to justify indecisiveness is the process by which not deciding becomes who we are. This behaviour protects us because, as it infiltrates our character, we are unlikely to be solicited for decisions by others, let alone make them ourselves.” – Joseph Bikart

11. “Indecision and fear can cripple any chances of succeeding and lead to maelstroms of regret that fuel our most fantastic nightmares.” ― Kilroy J. Oldster

12. “If you have ever felt inadequate, paralyzed between options and unable to decide, you are not an indecisive person. You are a person who lacks decisive skill sets!” ― Emiljano Citaku

13. “Turns out chronic indecision is a complaint for a huge number of ostensibly normal people. Of course the argument could be made that indecisiveness is precisely why they seem so normal. They’re tractable—they’re putty. But what these people are telling us, very consistently, is that chronic indecision is no picnic on the inside.” – Benjamin Kunkel

17. “Indecisiveness or the inability to act only invites disaster or undesirable results over the long run.” ― Steven Redhead
