For a certain kind of smart person (*points to self*), overthinking is a real problem. You could call it “analysis paralysis,” “getting lost in the weeds,” or simply “neurosis.” Whatever you call it, the effects are the same:
- Too much time spent thinking things over.
- Mulling that doesn’t lead to action.
So, here in 2013, what say we give the overthinking a miss?
I have some ideas on how to avoid it — or curtail it when it does arise — but what are your best methods for dealing with overthinking?
