Overcoming Indecision by Theodore Isaac Rubin
Arrange priorities in our lives, strengthen our belief in ourselves, start with self-evaluation.
Indecisiveness- jumping from one option to another points to underlying notion that no option
can be good.
Global Blockers to Decision Making:
Losing touch with feelings.
Resignation- avoidance of anxiety from potential conflict or shunning the whole thing
so as not to be pulled apart. Having no priorities or being out of touch with what is and
what isn't important in one's life. Lack of confidence or poor self esteem. Hopelessness,
depression, severe anxiety.
Unrealistic image of self or self-idealization. Self-erasing, inappropriate dependency on
others and the obsessive need to be liked. Obsessive quest for applause and mastery.
Dom Perignon Syndrome- perfectionism and wanting it all.
Sustaining the chronic belief that something better will come along; yearning for what isn't ,
while demeaning what is.
Nothing ever compares to what exists only in the imagination-that which exists in the
imagination does not exist at all.
Fear in generating self-hate in anticipation of a bad choice.
Coulda, woulda, shoulda-chonic self-hate from being swamped with tyrannical demands on self.
Time pressure distortion and panic, the illusion that there is not enough time.
Lack of inner integration or the/Chairman is Missing syndrome.
