You likely know someone who overthinks things. They’ll be paralyzed, analyzing a situation before acting. Unfortunately, though, our world is far too complex for finding the perfect solution to be possible. The moment you realize this is the moment you will find far more freedom in your life.

If you’re one of the world’s over-thinkers, watch for the next time it starts happening. You’ll know it’s happening as you’ll be caught up in your thoughts, and not doing what you want.

When you notice yourself overthinking something, start by telling yourself, “Stop it!” Do the next most logical thing. Think of it as an experiment, and like any experiment, you can adjust if it’s not working as you’d expect. No analysis required.

Stop thinking so much. You’ll find life and leadership a lot easier!
