I am an over-thinker. I mull things about in my head all the time, but I’ve learned to try and focus on things that I do have the power to change. There are more things in your control than you may realize, so before you stress yourself out think, “What can I do about this?”. Make an action plan with steps to achieve that will get you closer to whatever your goal is.
If I write at least 200 words per day over the next couple of months, I should be able to finish my novel by year’s end. This post is around 150 words, so if I write a couple of paragraphs every day my book will be done by December. Awesome.
