In this episode, we explore the problem of analysis paralysis – where we overthink things and get stuck at the point of decision: and we see how it manifested in one famous Australian politician. We also look at how intuition, when used correctly, can be a great support to our decision making.


  • Intuition = the way we translate our experience into action (Gary Klein)
  • Intuition can help us, when we are leaning on our areas of expertise – and on the expertise of others!
  • Don’t let your self-confidence be undermined by confident people who know less than you do
  • If you’re building expertise, it might change the way you make decisions in the future – still use a systematic approach when you have time and when you lack expertise, but in pressure situations your experience can inform your intuition and help you to make quick decisions
