Some people say: “If you have doubt, it is there for a reason.”
Other people say: “Everyone has doubt. Don’t miss a golden opportunity because you don’t feel ready. No one ever feels 100% ready for anything until it happens.”
What is the line between a rational decision and a missed opportunity, and how do I tell the difference?

Looking for an efficient, respectful and fair process for a group of 10-15 people to reach a consesus.
Some of the desired results: everyone would be heard respectfully (talking stick?) and cast a vote, a maximum amount of people would end up aligned with the choice, minimized influence of power games and hidden agendas, speedy (1-2 minutes per participant, including voting, so w/ 10 participants, a solid decision could be made in 10-15, max 20 minutes)
Have you experienced an effective process supporting the above? What does it look like, step by step?
Is there a resource where I can look up practical approaches to community-based choice-making?
