My Thoughts: Thinking

There are times I’ve been accused of thinking too much.  I used to think there was no such thing.  Now, though, I think perhaps there is.

If I overthink a project, it doesn’t go smoothly.  If I follow my instincts and basically go with the flow, it goes a lot better.

If I think too much, I wonder why I think I can do any of the things I do.  Thinking allows doubt to creep in.  Doubt makes me question everything, even in my day job.

That’s not to say I don’t still think a lot, but I’ve discovered that sometimes thinking does interfere with creativity.

Do you think too much?  Do you overthink?  How do you combat the self-doubt when/if you do?
