CONTENTMENT: Mental Tricks to stop overthinking about your system #6



SKILL #6 Evaluate the true impact of being wrong.

We often feel the need to overthink because we simply fear being wrong. It might make sense to overthink things if you're planning to jump your motorbike over the Grand Canyon or to go swimming with a great white shark. As for overthinking the equipment purchasing decision you made yesterday? Not so much.

Ask yourself in such moments what the realistic cost of being wrong is. When you can lower the stakes, you raise your ability to get mentally unstuck.

So don't overthink it. Take the inspiration here and run with it. Without looking back.

Thank you

Finally ... I am indebted to Scott Mautz for the stimulus for this series. Thank you Scott.
