They overthink every little problem until it becomes bigger and scarier and it actually is. Overthink positive things until they don’t look so positive anymore. Or overanalyze and deconstruct things and so the happiness that comes from just enjoying something in the moment disappears. Now, thinking things through can be a great thing of course. I know.

I feel guilty... So, I wake up this morning and find myself feeling guilty... oops what did I do??? Guilt is one of those dissonant energies that are widely promoted by the popular media, religion and cultural and social programs. BIIIG TIME. My first thought was, "what did I do that's so bad to wake me up with buckets of guilt?" When I was a young kid, at some point I decided I wanted to experience life as a regular human being experiences it. One of the first acts I did as a kid, when I was able to "experience" being human, was to remove a personal guilt by removing the memory of what I had done/experienced from my mind. Some decades later, the usefulness of "living like a human being" died off, and I stepped into my natural self once more, but with several programs still in place from the years of "being human".

Extra pushes of the snooze button, the final cram session before an exam, waiting until midlife to pick a career. Maybe you’re procrastinating right now. I used to believe most of this was just inertia. Now I’m not so sure. Consider chronic procrastination. But if action isn’t the cure for procrastination, what is? “Just Do It” Culture and Distaste for Planning We live in a culture that has taken Nike’s famous slogan to heart. The slogan has some merit, doing things is how things get done (even if tautologically so). By putting all the emphasis on momentum, however, we might ignore other more fruitful approaches.
