Analysis paralysis

Level 0 (neophyte): Gather data, analyze swiftly, make a decision. No paralysis.

Level 1 (practitioner): Gather data. Can’t decide between possible actions. Spend too long analyzing, end up doing nothing. Paralysis occurs.

Level 2 (master): Due to awareness of “analysis paralysis” problem, can’t decide whether to be decisive or do a big analysis. Second-order paralysis. Meta-failure achieved.

Guess who just got promoted to master!

Just kidding. I got promoted a long time ago.
