How Does Doubt Lead Us to Our Full Potential?

Why can’t people just make up their minds?But those of us on the decisive side of the ledger have our issues too. We get in over our heads sometimes.

We overcommit. We wish we would have thought things through more clearly.

We fail to respect the consequences of our decisions. We oftentimes fly by the seat of our pants.Overconfidence leads to disappointment.

And indecision leaves unrealized potential. Neither of these paths sound very promising.Maybe there’s a third way.What if doubt actually illuminates the best path forward? Not doubt that ends in paralysis. But doubt that demands better answers. That kind of doubt may actually be necessary to grow and find meaningful solutions to vexing problems. Francis Bacon, an English philosopher
