Or, at the very least, severely downgrading the quality of it.
The focus of this goal is to be more deliberate in making decisions and making things happen, because I spend so much time in my head. Here’s one article I found with advice on this topic: http://www.conciselistings.com/self-healing/article7688.htm
One of the tips from it is to consider what I ultimately want from my decision, what the end goal is. I like that idea, I usually don’t think of accomplishing one specific thing when I’m indecisive. Instead, the problem is that I want to accomplish too many small things, or I want to make the choice that will allow me to maximize the small goals that I can fulfill. Highlighting the major overarching objective in a decision should help with that.
Also, another idea that I’ve borrowed from Ignatian imagination and spirituality is to picture choosing each one of your decisions in your head, and then pay attention to which choice you would regret NOT making the most. So if you were attempting to decide whether to go running or go swimming, for example, how much would you regret not going swimming if you chose to go running instead? I think that putting myself in that situation makes it extremely real for me, and going with the gut feelings that I get from that mental exercise works pretty well a lot of the time. 2 years ago
got to stop thinking of things i can’t do anything about, i need to pick stuff i can do something about 5 years ago
This is a common problem for the intelligent but deep thought doesn’t really tend to be that productive. Oftentimes my best ideas come when I’m doing something.

If you’ve added this goal, you probably know the story: daydreaming all the time, hoping to become the best _ or the greatest _ or even just a humble, skilled _ who never aspires to greatness but just to make one single, perfect _ ...
I like things as they are now much better: when I can’t figure out what to do, I make sure I do something, anything – cycle my bicycle, read things online, play around with the things I’m interested in … even just go down to the city and walk around, taking photographs.
Doing things is ALWAYS better than just “sitting around”, imho. As Mark Twain said, “Anyone who has had a bull by the tail knows five or six more things than someone who hasn’t.” 6 years ago
where does thinking this much takes me?? nowhere! less think, more action … i think i already wrote this somewhere. Action! 7 years ago
less thinking and more acting is what i should do, i dont know what im trying by thinking a thousand times in every decision i have to take because the correct one does not exist. It´s ok to think but not this much, is not healthy and i loose time with it not doing anything. 7 years ago
