●  09:30 – Get rid of the gray areas and backup plans

●  11:00 – How do you help people act instead of weighing up the options?

●  13:05 – Pick something. You don’t have to kill the other options: but pick one option and give it a try

●  14:48 – Benjamin Franklin would list all the pros and cons of any choice

3 Key Points:

1.  Make a choice. Any choice. Action is always better than paralysis

2.  You can have time and energy for what you love if you eliminate the things you don’t

3.  Take some time to work on your choices - brainstorm, create a list, or use another tool to get out of your head
