Too Much Thinking

too much thinking not enough doing

too much thinking not enough doing

I’ve always been a little too analytical. When I was in ballet class (a long, long time ago), my teacher would see me thinking about how to perfect each step of a combination and would tell me to stop thinking about it and just do it! You know, thinking will only take you so far and that’s something that I need to be reminded of from time to time. I tend to overthink things to the point where I’ve talked myself out of doing something before it even begun. This weekend, I’m going to try really hard to take action on some of the things that I’ve now been thinking about for a while. Even if it’s just a few little steps, some progress is better than no progress.

Tell me: What do you hope to accomplish this weekend?

    I can sooooo relate to this. I’ve always overanalyzed things but I’ve finally learned how to act before reaching that point. I still could use some work on it, but I’m getting there! I’m trying to become a weekend worker instead of pulling all these crazy all-nighters (like tonight will be, haha!) so wish me luck! Good luck o your weekend endeavors as well :)

      Good luck- hope your all-nighter was successful! Ooof, I’m old- I can’t pull all-nighters anymore ;) Thank you- I did make a little bit of progress!

    I definitely know how you feel! I have so many things I need to stop over thinking and just start doing. I know if I get started, they probably will just fall into place, somewhat easily. At least, that’s what I’m hoping!

    I have the same problem!My martial arts teachers have caught me a few times trying to “think through” a technique vs. do it. :) I’ve taken up meditation this year, and one of the most intriguing things my meditation teacher said is that meditating is a way to get to know ourselves through our bodies vs. our mind/thoughts.

      So interesting- thanks for sharing your thoughts Carrie. I was the same way with ballet- I was so in my head, but actually did a lot better when I just tried the movements with my body.
