Analysis Paralysis

This article talks about Analysis Paralysis, which s the state of over-thinking a situation so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome. It can occur with many decisions, including investment decisions such as buying or selling securities. It can be treated as over-complicated, with too many detailed options, so that a choice is never made, rather than try something and change if a major problem arises. Analysis paralysis is an example of an anti-patter.
