Man, sometimes I think so much that my body gets tired! I think and think and think some more -- and after all my thinking, I've just thought myself out of doing something!
I'm very sure that I've missed out on many opportunities because of this overthinking. Maybe there was a business opportunity that I thought too much about -- and ended up not doing it. That means one opportunity missed because of my over-active brain!
Sometimes, you just need to do it now and think about it later. If you have the tendency to think yourself out of presented opportunities, then you need to start practicing more ACTION and doing less THINKING.
You know, TOO MUCH thinking could actually be dangerous! You could think of problems that don't exist and probably won't EVER exist. You could think yourself into depression -- and when you're depressed, you won't want to do anything.
But the less you think and the MORE you do, the MORE opportunities you'd get, the MORE progress you'd make in your life, and most importantly, the LESS regrets you'd have in life.
Now this doesn't mean to jump into something foolishly! But don't take the entire year to decide what you want to do! If the opportunity presents itself, make a fairly quick decision about it if the opportunity could take you to a better place in life. Otherwise, you're going to think yourself out of it and would never know "what could have been."
