Overthinking is costing you $2.34M


It took me 3 years to get rid of overthinking. Here is how to stop and take more action quickly:

Overthinking is a problem with many names that interweave into each other.

  • Burnout
  • Overwhelm
  • Overthinking
  • Procrastination
  • Analysis Paralysis

There are more to this list, but for now recognize them not as separate problems but as a whole.

They’re all intimately connected and flow into each other like water.

As founders and creators we often face some of them.

We might even face all of them, and it’s a serious problem.

Especially on the journey of building a thriving online business.

“Time is money,” as the adage goes.

Overthinking derails us from progress and takes up huge chunks of time and attention.

Time that could have been spent growing our brand faster and more effortlessly.

Let’s assume that your time is currently worth $650/h.

Not an uncommon number…

Being stuck overthinking or putting off work costs for just a day costs you $6,500.

Every single day!

Yes, the math is correct; I know you work more than 8 hours a day…

The reason why I believe you overthink and freeze up is this:

You’re afraid.

“I’m afraid of making a mistake.”

“What if I mess up.”

Those are the underlying thoughts we’d rather not recognize.

You know this is true.

I know it’s true.

And it’s ok.

Be OK with making mistakes. It’s part of the journey.

In fact, make many mistakes instead.

Stumble around. Try things.

Fail faster!

By failing faster, you make progress.

And progress beats overthinking.

Just look at the pic below.

That’s Alex Hormozi.

He shared how he sucked at the beginning.

So much so that he had to get a little tipsy to shoot a video.

Today, Alex is a giant, and no one cares about his “mistakes.”

He spent 1000+ hours perfecting his craft (probably more).

He failing forward.

Went bankrupt a few times.

Then, he became the success that he is today.

I promise. You will be ok.

Publish that post.

Write that newsletter.

Create your online community.

Fail forward. And WIN!
