How do you deal with Analysis Paralysis?

I’m told that it is common for Business Analysts to have experienced analysis paralysis at least once in their careers. One of the reasons being our human need to prove ourselves right - looking for more and more information to support our (or our boss’) original theory even when our research shows something else.

What can one do to get out of it?

I would say choose one and then when you experience a blocker or unexpected result be prepared to pivot right away to any backup plan you have
