Sometimes you need to just go on autopilot and not think about things. I first heard the phrase “Paralysis from Analysis” in college. I was taking a physical education class and the instructor was telling us that sports stars are usually on autopilot when they’re playing because if they stopped to think about what they’re doing they’ll probably fail from overthinking their move. It’s a good phrase and it applies to everything. The other day I was driving in traffic and was thinking to myself, “I haven’t stalled out in a while. Congratulations!” Then I let out the clutch without pressing the gas and stalled it. Great job. This is why I should stop thinking so hard.
