Often we don’t want to have confrontations or face difficult questions. So we ruminate a bit, think about different options and then proceed to do nothing. The unspoken assumption is that things are going to stay the same and since they are tolerable, that is preferable to a fight or a painful realization. But here’s the thing: often every day we wait we limit the options we have while the problem grows bigger. Let’s say you feel a weird pain. You wait until it’s unbearable. However whatever caused the problem is now at a more advanced stage then it was. Often the time to respond is shortened and we might have to make rash decisions. It’s so much better to catch on early, research the best options and then making sure we gather the resources necessary.
