What does overthinking mean anyway?

A chief purpose of the brain is to think, right? Yes.

How then, can the brain over think then?

It is like saying your throat over-swallows or your heart over-beats or your eyes over-see.

If overthinking is not what we mean, what do we really mean to say?

  • We need to ACT versus continuing to be indecisive.
  • We need to decide on a course of action based on advice, discussions, agreement, etc.
  • We need to choose an item/service based on pros and con, like and dislikes, etc.

Danger of the using the term overthinkingwe blame the brain for doing one of its chief functions - thinking!

Inadvertently, we end up blaming the brain and suppress taking full responsibility for inaction, indecisiveness, and failure to choose.
