I am very prone to overthinking and second guessing things. November was very much about that. I did it at work, I did it in the SCA, I did in my gaming. Pretty much everywhere, except my marriage 🙂
The “where is my passion” post is an example. By overthinking in this case, I went back. Why am I focused in this area if I don’t seem to care about it as much? So sometimes overthinking is good.
In examining my SCA paths, it was probably a bad thing. My time and energy is spent second guessing things. Should I have done this? Should I have done it in this way? It is too late. I have done them. Reflecting isn’t bad; you can determine you were wrong and hopefully do it better next time. But second guessing in a vacuum is probably bad.
In gaming, I have looking at the story I am telling and whether it is right and asking my players what they think. That is good; a few problems came out of those discussions and they can be fixed.
Here is hoping that December is less thinking and more doing 🙂
