Harvard Business Review reminds people, "Your mental depth gives you a major competitive advantage. Once you learn to keep overthinking in check, you’ll be able to harness your sensitivity for the superpower that it can be." Advances in Technology and product management software have been a benefit to productivity, allowing us to manage and oversee more tasks and projects than ever before. With that comes more decisions, responsibilities and the potential for even more mistakes. For many, the result is decision overload or overthinking.
Many decisions are made daily; the psychological toll can be taxing for even the most resourceful multitasker. Decision-making can leave you feeling trapped in a never-ending loop of assessments and analysis paralysis. This can often leave you constantly second-guessing every decision made.
Overthinking can artificially raise the stakes, causing every decision to appear more crucial than it is. Now throw an overwhelming volume of decisions at your brain and you’ll be left feeling overstressed and fatigued, which leads directly back to the cycle of overthinking. As you can imagine, decision fatigue and overthinking can feed into one another creating a downward spiral of anxiety and stress.
