Thinking too much?

There are two types of people, the doers and the thinkers. Which one are you?

Do you jump into action at the slightest nudge 
Or do you sit around analyzing an issue for ages
Are you the one who acts in haste and repents at leisure
Or who never could decide what to do, when to do it
Overthinking can be counterproductive at times
But being overly zealous can have its drawbacks too
Better tread a middle ground, neither lean this way or that
There are more chances of you succeeding if you do


Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere.”- Goodreads.

This week the Wednesday Challenge from partner Susan and myself is OVERTHINK.

Written for Weekly Prompts;Overthinking, hosted by Sue W and GC

  1. “Better tread a middle ground, neither lean this way or that” Wise. That’s exactly it. When I was younger, action was always a top priority for me, then as I aged, deep thinking became present. Now, I work on the balance you write of, Sadje. Awesome poem.

  2. In some areas where efficiency is needed, I can make decisions quickly–grocery shopping, for example. But weighty issues…I have to ponder 🙂

  3. I am all over the place; when it comes to eating a chocolate bar there is no thinking involved, the wrapper is opened even before one can blink and pop goes that delicious manna 😀
    When it comes to splurging on something that looks pretty, or shopping for souvenirs, my companion can finish his lunch, dinner and I’m still thinking.
    You are right a middle ground is what we need.
