#4. Do not over think. Because we have the luxury of time and because we are now liberated from the analytical thinking we engaged in when we were still working, our minds must be longing to scrutinize every detail and analyze every situation. STOP. We need not drain our mental faculties before any decision. And sometimes, we need to leave the decision to others.
Unless of course you’re a glutton for punishment. Either that, or you simply can’t trust others to make decisions that may or may not affect you. Is it a case of wanting to control? Is it a matter of pride? Do we honestly think we can make better decisions because of our seniority and experience? Or are we compelled each time to render a judgement when none is required? In the latter case, perhaps we put too much value on our own opinions.
Well…. STOP agonizing. Some things just happen. Some people just behave a certain way. Some situations simply go wrong. Some people are happy with what they have and in fact, manage very well. Some people simply don’t care. So? Let it be. Be happy. 🙂
I’m anal retentive. I’m a workaholic. I have insomnia. And I’m a control freak. That’s why I’m not married. Who could stand me? — Madonna
