I read a LinkedIn post recently about how important it is to take action and not dwell or think about things too much (been seeing posts like this too much lately). That while acting you will figure it all out, and that too much time thinking will just get in the way.
Well… I get what they are saying, and agree that action is important, but feel way too many take advice like this too literally. The process of taking time to think has lost favor… and that is a very bad thing. So indeed if stymied, or feeling despair, action is no doubt the answer… BUT, please don’t just jump in, or think you always have to be acting, and take time to allow your mind to work things out, be inventive/creative, and “think.”
