I always thought indecision was not being able to decide between option a and option b: Itsu or Pret? The plaid trousers or the pastel ones? The difficulty of settling on one of two equally good choices. But listening to Harriet and Rosanagh and all the other women in my life who share their uncertainties, I realise that indecision is ego, it’s comparison, it’s fear, it’s imposter syndrome. The question isn’t: What’s the better choice? It’s: Why am I too scared to move forward? "Women apologise to me all the time," Zoë Cohen, an executive coach
tells me. "When I’m in a session, my female clients will often say, 'I’m rambling, I’m sorry' or 'That wasn’t very articulate'. If they feel they need to apologise for their words in a safe room with another woman, they probably don’t feel certainty in their own decisions out in the world."
