Which one would you rather choose?
As a deep thinker, I have the tendency to overthink, and as a doer, I also have the tendency to overdo. I’ve become more mindful of this, and my goal is to stop this type of behavior, and instead add more production to it. It is not that I don’t like it, because I do. I’ve been able to multitask and complete important projects, however the downside is not really enjoying these achievements. This is because of feeling burnout. I am an over-thinker, and I am an overdoer. Not all the time, but when I am, I feel excited, determined, and even more so eager to get to the next step. I’m learning to calm down, and to be more present. In doing this, I had to eliminate….DISTRACTIONS! What I’ve learned about myself is that I work to become distracted, away from what is distracting me. It can be anything, anyone, but situational. I am reminding you, and myself, that we cannot control what happens next, and all we can do is what we can, and let it rest (don’t overthink it). That’s right, that ending part can be difficult, so we begin the next task. We have to learn to appreciate the efforts we complete, even the small ones. Don’t allow overthinking ruin this for you. And maybe this is because we want things to be right so badly, but no matter how bad we want something, or someone, or whatever, we are only in control of ourselves. Lets become more aware of our thoughts and not just our actions. Let’s take it easy. Not to say don’t think, and don’t do, but becoming aware of these impulses and adding substance behind them, instead of stress.
Baby steps, soon to being an adult…look at you 🙂
