Keep in mind there’s a big difference between calculating and overthinking.
Calculations – strategic, have a valid point, an execution, a plan B/C etc, and involve other people as necessary. Calculations lead to victory. Also factual with evidence, and a reason.
Overthinking – making up problems that aren’t present or even existing. Also causes unhappiness, craziness, and loss of friends/family based on empty theories instead of actual facts.
I’m going to take a line from one of my favote movies from the early 2000’s called Training Day:
It’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove.
The metaphor here is overthinking is knowing, calculations is proving.
Today’s lesson – calculations will guarantee victory in your struggles; overthinking will cause your downfall and failure.
