Overthinking a thing is an area I struggle with. For me, it’s a form of procrastination. Ultimately it’s fear based. I fear what will happen if I do something one way versus another. I fear consequences to others as well as myself.
Do you ever feel like you have more ideas than time?
You might feel like your brain doesn’t have an off button.
You might feel like you’re a hostage to overthinking.

You want to launch your opt-in to get new subscribers but can’t get the title right.
You want to release your course but question its length, its wordiness, its…
You think so much, you feel like you’re busy and productive but at the end of the day, you’re no further than when you started.
Overthinking is Frustrating, isn’t it?
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”~ Bruce Lee
I understand. I totally do. In fact, it’s happening to me right now. As I write this I’m questioning whether I’m saying the right things. Am I clear enough? Should I reword it? Is it good enough?
If I let myself stay in this space, I’ll never send this. I feel it’s too flawed. But, you know what? Who cares? Sure, some may read this and be turned off, but, you’re reading it.
That’s what matters.
You identify with what I just said (flaws and all).
You know I understand you and the way you overthink a thing.
You know I understand how paralyzed you feel.
You want to move forward so badly, but you don’t.
It feels like somehow you’ve stepped on flypaper and you’re struggling to get free.
Freedom awaits you. I know because I’m walking it right now. I haven’t ‘arrived’, but I’m moving forward.
I hit publish on this message even though it’s imperfect.
I trust in inspired action.
I have faith in the result.
I believe these words will breathe hope into the person needing them. And, that person will be courageous enough to reach out for help.
Are you that person?
You’re tired of feeling like you’re a slave to your perfectionism, your mind, your self-doubt.
You’re ready for the next step.
You’re ready to hit send on that email, publish that blog post, launch that course, reach out to that influencer, place that Facebook ad, or [insert your next inspired action here].
There is a way to step off the fly paper.
You’ll have the sticky residue on your feet for a while so you’ll find yourself stuck again.
BUT, here’s the thing…
The sticky residue loses its power to stall your progress with each step you take. So, just take the next step — sticky, difficult, new, unknown, flawed.
You’ll soon feel lighter, freer, and before you know it, you’re at the finish line.
Your book is released, your course is launched, your email is sent, your blog post is published, your [whatever it is] is released into the world for people to experience.
