Friction, in both the physical and metaphorical sense, plays a crucial role in our lives. Physically, friction is the resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another, a fundamental force without which we couldn’t walk or hold objects.
When it comes to decision-making, friction manifests as indecisive thinking, where mental resistance to making a choice leads to a stall or delay in action. This kind of friction can be debilitating, as it hampers progress and often results in missed opportunities or prolonged periods of inactivity. Overcoming this mental friction requires a blend of clarity, confidence, and the willingness to take risks, pushing past the stall to make definitive choices.
