20 Aug I know three things.
I know three things:
1. Everybody overthinks.
2. Nobody thinks they can change that.
3. Everybody can.
What is overthinking?
When what you think gets in the way of what you want.
Overthinking isn’t a personality trait. It’s the sneakiest, greediest form of fear.
It’s sneaky because overthinking masquerades as being prepared.
It’s greedy because overthinking gobbles up time, creativity and energy.
Overthinking steals books, businesses, diets and hope.
It’s the most expensive thing people and companies invest in without ever knowing.
Have you ever judged an idea as too dumb to even write down? That’s overthinking.
Have you ever told yourself a story about why someone didn’t text back? That’s overthinking.
Has it ever felt like you have a “pocket jury” with you, cross examining each new adventure until you dare not chase it? That’s overthinking.
Overthinking is like Novocain for your dream.
Eleven years ago, it told me I wasn’t an author. I wrote that book anyway.
Six books later it still tries to tell me that, but I’ve learned a few things that have helped me along the way.
My next book is about overthinking.
I’m doing the research for it right now and wanted to share a few ideas I think you need to know.
If you’re tired of overthinking, sign up for the SeptemberJanuary Challenge.
It’s a 30-day goal-setting challenge for you, me and a few thousand people from around the world.
I’ll send you a PDF checklist, six different ideas and an invitation to a community of some of the most creative people you’ve ever met.
It’s free. It’s fun and overthinking will never see it coming.
