Career paralysis is a common phenomenon whereby a person may feel such an overwhelming volume of choices that they are paralyzed, thus unable to making a choice to move forward. Should I get married? Have kids? Who, should I marry? Where should I live? Do I buy or do I rent?
It’s not the choices that are hard it’s the potential alternatives. The harder the choices are the more consequential the outcomes. “It’s possible at any age, and happens when there is an overemphasis on needing to always ‘get it right’ and a dominant perspective of ‘failure is bad and means I’m bad’.” Evelyn Cotter
When we are faced with an endless choice of possibilities, we may flounder, which could result in making zero choices at all. Struggling to choose a TV show show or what to have for dinner, are not life-changing problems; however, indecision could become a problem when it affects your work or career choices. If you’ve ever disliked your job but felt stuck, and you apprehensively go over alternatives before finally disregarding them and just staying stuck, you’re not alone.
Career paralysis, is the inability to make any career decision for the fear of making the incorrect one. This paralysis is aggravating and may take a toll on your confidence, health, and relationships and leave you trapped in a career that makes you unhappy.
Here's a talk that could literally change your life. Which career should I pursue? Should I break up -- or get married?! Where should I live? Big decisions like these can be agonizingly difficult. But that's because we think about them the wrong way, says philosopher Ruth Chang. She offers a powerful new framework for shaping who we truly are.
