While I do not have this exact
issue, I can make some observations and recommendations. The primary factors that are in play here are two fold: perfectionism to finding the "best" and that "research" has (for perfectionists especially) negative connotations.
Perfectionism is a broad topic but suffice it to say that "not everything requires equal effort" and you only have so much time, energy, money, and so forth to expend. Sometimes things can
have a "good enough" solution. Be wary of spending inordinate amounts of time in trying to find the best, most optimal, or perfect solution or answer to your query: this is called "analysis paralysis" and is a subtle form of procrastination. An affirmation that I mentioned once before on here to beat procrastination is: "The best way to get ahead, is to get started". Making forward progress, in any direction, is still progress and it overcomes that "analysis paralysis" problem by forcing me to just make a decision and then adapt as needed.
I also, much to my chagrin and best efforts, try to avoid locking myself into accepting or believing that the first "thing" or interaction that I have/with on any given topic as "the one true way, approach, or perspective" to that topic. That is a form of anchoring bias and subtly humans (or at least me) do not
like to re-learn, re-interpret, and re-evaluate their beliefs, positions, perspectives, world views, etc. on any given topic very often, if ever at all, as I am lazy. By trying to find the "best" answer, I would postulate, that you're trying to avoid having to, in the future, ever having to come back to the topic, learn more, and re-evaluate it and incorporate new information. Much like you, I want the first answer to the best, correct, and only answer to many problems. Life, however, seems to vehemently disagree with that premise. I, instead, make "satisficing" choices and gladly, wilfully accept that I must re-adapt, re-learn, and re-examine my positions, information, perspective, etc. regularly. I have inverted my premise to be that: the only one truth
is that there are no one truths other than this truth that all other truths must be continuously, explicitly, expressly, and quite often re-evaluated, re-examined, and re-decided regularly, especially at the most inopportune times, invariably. Cheating? Maybe. Mental gymnastics? Possibly. Dang clever? Why yes, yes it is
Personally, I understand why "research" has so many negative connotations. In academia, we often were forced
to write "research" papers on topics we, honestly, would/will never
care about and thus associated the discomfort, dissatisfaction (usually) from others finding issues with our research/inconclusive research, and ultimately pain with that term. As well, it seems that "research" is this never ending process and that comes to a head right quick with that whole perfectionism thing and searching for the one true, correct answer. We just cannot catch a break it seems. Instead of using "research", I instead just don't use that term at all then because it's just not going to ever work. I create lists of "X Books To-Read" and add things to it continuously as I find an interesting book on the topic, recommendation, or what have you. When time, money, and so forth fits I look at those lists, grab a book or two off it and then look at it to see if "really" want to buy it and read it (if not, I usually write a note on that book for _why_ don't want to, then mark it as "Nope, not doing - ..." otherwise I purchase and read it). I feel great about it then and am able to move forward.
I hope any of that helps
