Analysis Paralysis Will Cost You!

March 21, 2024

Back in the “good old days” before Covid, waiting to make a big financial decision didn’t cost you all that much. When inflation was nearly nonexistent and interest rates were 3–4%, you could take your time when making a major capital investment decision. Not so anymore!

That was then, this is now…

Today, the norm is persistent substantial inflation in construction costs, and 7%+ interest rates. Those conditions can easily have church leaders succumb to the disease of “analysis paralysis”! This disease will be costly because continuing high inflation may well push your project permanently out of reach. It can also be deadly because it will kill the momentum of your church.

Don’t get us wrong – we are all for thorough analysis of major decisions such as when to proceed with a major building project. The problem occurs when good analysis morphs into a never-ending feedback loop that creates paralysis to make any decision.

If you currently have that “deer in the headlights” feeling about a major financial project confronting your church’s leadership team, help is available! We have created a practical e-book “Clarity – How to Move Decisions Forward with Confidence”. In it, you’ll find the principles that can lead you out of the fog of “analysis paralysis” and into the clear light of day to move forward with full confidence.
