It is possible you have come across two or more different posts/articles that talk about the importance of taking action and not overthinking.
Often we have this idea in our heads. It may be to launch a blog, a website, start a business, or whatever. We’re excited. We think. That excitement remains. We then think some more. The result of which can cause negative self-talk and self-doubt in our minds, which can cripple us from taking any form of action.
Slowly these little seeds of doubt fester:
“But I haven’t thought about this” and “What about this?”
“Shit, will this actually work?”
“I definitely need to think this through a little more.”
“I need to perfect things a little more before I’m ready.”
And so it goes:
“We generate fears while we sit, we overcome them by action.” – Dr. Henry Link
We are our own worst enemies.
The truth is you’ll never, ever be ready.
The only way you’ll attain clarity is by taking action.
I’m not advocating blind action. Sure, you need some sort of strategy, but once you have an idea, get going. Do something.
I’m not saying the process will be easy.
More often than not you’ll find that you’ll slip, fall, and stumble along the way.
You’ll realize what doesn’t work and try something else. You need to keep doing better things, you must not be afraid of the consequences and you must learn from your mistakes and motivate yourself to do more.
