Not a day goes by on the BiggerPockets Forums without one or more threads referencing the condition we commonly refer to as Analysis Paralysis. It happens to all of us from time to time, but those who have been around the block once or twice seem to be able to overcome this frame of mind with more ease than the newbies.

Why?  What is it?  What causes it?  Why can some of us overcome it easier than others?

I don’t believe it to be so.  In fact, in the video below, I outline my thinking around a very logical explanation for what causes analysis paralysis and what it takes to avoid getting succumbed to it. Please enjoy!
