At the juncture of pessimism and obsession lies the habit of overthinking. The minutiae of everyday life does not require excess planning, and the fleeting faux pas does not require guilt. No one else is looking at your life anywhere near that closely. But still we examine the smallest decision from every angle, just to be sure. It may be a reaction to life actually going well, and the anxiety we have about that changing. We are so concerned about making the wrong decision that we often end up making no decision at all, which could be worse. At the very least, it wastes your time. The Holderness Family, who achieved real world stardom by winning The Amazing Race earlier this year, shares their theme song with us, a combination rap and children's song about overthinking everything.
