Question: What’s the worst that can happen?


March 13, 2014

For some of us, this question releases us from worry. But for people who tend to waffle, the query sends us down the rabbit hole, chasing every possible scenario — good and bad — instead of making a decision. Ouch!

Unstuck’s “Pros vs. Pros” tool is a fast way to stop hesitating and start choosing. If you’re on your iPad, click to go directly to the tool (this won’t work if you’re using Unstuck on the web). Or download the free Unstuck iPad app here.
