Are you Affected by Paralysis by Analysis? How I try to Overcome My Issues

Paralysis by Analysis or Analysis Paralysis can be defined as over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation, so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome.

Does Income Change Who You Are as a Spender? or your Tastes?

When The Wife and I normally go away, we keep to the all inclusive resorts out of the country.  Why?
