As a fan and follower of Anne Bogel's blog and podcasts, I bought this book because I thought I was an overthinker but just because I have fun Bogel's writing (I loved "I'd Rather Be Reading" and gave it to man toy people as a gift). I tend to be a "satisficer" with most decisions, but a few mins into this book and I realized that this was the book I didn't know I needed."Don't Overthink It" is not just a book about over-thinking but a book about productivity, navigating life and making wise decisions. My favorite chapter is the one about using our values to support us create decisions without overthinking. There are often times I've second guessed myself about a decision that should have been a clear yes -- it aligns with my values -- but secondary concerns stalled me. I required the reminder that our thought lives are truly our lives, and retraining our thoughts can reshape our actual lives. I saw myself in a lot of of the examples Bogel gives, especially when she writes about deciding to splurge and rethinking all the costs, over and over again.I might adopt her phrase "completing the cycle" for myself. "Open cycles," she writes, consume mental energy, occupy brain space, and beg us to monitor them as 'jobs in progress." Our brains obtain anxious when too a lot of cycles remain open, because it takes energy to maintain them." I go through this a lot with little cycles (putting things away) and bigger ones (executing on a task or project before starting a fresh one).This is a book I'll return to and likely give as a gift. It makes a amazing graduation bonus for young people heading into adulthood. But most of all, even those who don't overthink will learn something from this book.
A non fiction book that could be defined as self help, but I would call it life instructional! This is a genre that I don't typically read, but from a person/author who I love so I thought I would give it a test and I am glad I did.Anne Bogel is known to a lot of for her blog or her podcast or both where she helps connect readers with amazing books. As a book blogger myself, my goal for my blog is to ramble about books in hopes that readers will connect and search a book that they would like to read. I have followed her career for a bit, so was excited when she announced a third book and then was greatly intrigued when she started speaking about what it would be about - a vastly various direction from her first is book focuses on the concept of overthinking and the a lot of various ways in which a person can overthink and then provides tools and skills to support create decision making easier and how to avoid overthinking when it isn't necessary. I found this book to be very helpful. The tools were simple to implement quickly and I loved her private antidotes that created the skills easier to is is the excellent bonus book for the person in your life who may spend too much time pondering and needs to move more things into action mode. This is a book that I could see myself dipping back into time after time to remind myself that overthinking can hold you from doing and enjoying life.
"Don't Overthink It tackles the problem facing a lot of today, decision fatigue, too a lot of options and confusing choices. Anne takes the reader through various possible reasons that might cause you to ""overthink"". Some will resonate, and some will not, and that is okay. I relate to the introduction story about worrying about the weather and how it will affect travel. Literally no control over the situation, so go into over planning mode. I didn't however, understand the example of finishing your taxes method ahead of time and then waiting until the very latest min to mail them. One of the key thoughts I picked up on was essentially deciding on a value and then letting that value tutorial a yes/no decision. For example, ""I will always say yes to an opportunity to see my childhood best friend."" When an question comes up whether to visit the friend, or go to a concert, the decision is already created for you, you visit the friend. I can see this concept coming in very useful. A lot of other amazing take-aways!A amazing book for your home library!I received an advanced copy of this via Net Galley."
As a globe class over-thinker, I have been looking forward to the publication of this book! In typical Anne Bogel fashion, she clearly lays out the challenge and then proceeds to offer practical solutions, with a lot of interesting/amusing examples from her life. While I have heard some of these problems discussed in other forums, she has the special skill of helping her reader think through the factors that have helped make the issue for them and then choosing the right solution.I am recommending this book to all my friends, as this is a excellent time for us all to consider how we can feel "in control" when so much is beyond our ability to take action.
Thanks to partner NetGalley for the digital ARC of Anne Bogel’s Don't Overthink It: Create Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life. The book released on March 3.I learned so much from Anne Bogel’s new, brilliant book Don’t Overthink It. (One thing I learned is the likely reason I have procrastinated writing this review: as a perfectionist, I wish my review to be perfect, and since I know I can never fully communicate just how relevant and strong I found the book, I just hold putting off beginning my review. But, I’m writing it. That means progress past perfectionism, right?!)Anne Bogel is, herself, an epic overthinker, and she therefore weaves real-life examples of overthinking and its consequences into her book: “Before long, I’m snared in the too-familiar spin cycle of overthinking, unable to focus on anything else. I know the signs: lots of mental action, none of it constructive, all the while knowing I have better things to do. All my mental energy is consumed by the forecast—which I can’t do a thing about—instead of the things that actually need my attention” (loc 143). She shares one example in which dithering in the grocery shop about whether to buy flowers—and, if so, which ones—left her (1) without flowers and (2) without another key ingredient she required to pick up. So much of her brain power went to overthinking a small, easy decision that she didn’t have the mental zone important to take care of what she actually required to do. It’s these kinds of examples, which she uses both to start each chapter and to drive home points throughout each fresh principle, that helped me as a reader to see both how relevant this book is and the consequences of overthinking in my own life.Looking back at my galley, I have a highlight on almost every page. There’s a lot to explore here (and there’s joy in the discovery), but I found strong her tip about perfectionism, about routine and ritual, and about values-based decision making. Anne is amazing both at helping readers to identify their own overthinking habits and also at offering solutions that we can implement immediately. Her ideas are backed up by research, but the facts never encroach on the warmth that characterizes everything Anne does, whether it’s her podcast, her blog, or one of her three phenomenal nonfiction books.I learned so much from Don’t Overthink It . . . and had so a lot of uncomfortable moments of recognition and reflection and growth. These learning experiences meant that I was experiencing the truth of Anne Bogel’s ideas and writing. I think this book is amazing both for those who overthink themselves OR who have an overthinker in their lives (I’m definitely going to share this book with my husband!). I highly recommend Anne Bogel’s Don’t Overthink It—don’t dither! Order today.
ysis paralysis. Rumination. Perfectionism. How do we war these and so a lot of other types of overthinking? Values-based decision making. Completing the cycle. Easy of Anne Bogel, her blog (Modern Mrs. Darcy), and her podcast (What Should I Read Next) will be familiar with Anne's skill for bringing universal topics to an intimate level and helping us see them with new eyes. She turns her talent to the topic of chronic over-thinking in her fresh book, Don't Overthink It: Create Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life.'Life changing' is an over-used term lately. But it's accurate for this book. Reading it has changed my life for the better. The thoughts, ideas, and processes that Anne shares in the book aren't highly original; we've heard them before, seen them elsewhere. The genius of the book is that she's brought them all together in one put and presented them in such an engaging manner. The info is both practical and e chapter on values-based decisions, titled Decide What Matters, has caused a major shift in the method I live my life because I did, after a lot of reflection, decide what matters most to me. This now informs all my choices, though it takes time for it to become automatic. And the chapter on limiting your options to save your sanity, Limit Yourself to Free Yourself, helped me see why having all the options is not always a amazing thing. “Each little decision requires only a bit of brain power, but the ulative result is large.”You may not think you’re an Overthinker. You may not normally be an Overthinker. But the lessons in this book are helpful whether you face chronic decision-making issues or are just going through a season of decision-overload. I highly recommend it.
Prior to reading this book, I would have said I am really thorough when making a decision- 'overthinking' wasn't part of my vocabulary. Having read the book, I realize I am a classic overthinker. I can drive myself and my family batty with my multiple scenarios and possible outcomes (so a lot of considerations and factors!) as I work to create the best decision. Apparently being really thorough might be code for overthinking- especially when it starts to feel not so good.I immediately started using some of the tactics in this book and they immediately helped me with some of my decisions. For example, there is a chapter on values and using core values to support create decisions. I recently read another book that talked about identifying private core values (mine are connection and contribution) and aligning my behaviors, both personally and professionally, with those values. Anne Bogel goes one step further- she and her husband have identified core values as a couple and as a family and those support create their family decisions. That is genius for me. It has already sparked several thoughtful conversations with my husband and has helped us plan/prioritize as a family more successfully in how we spend our time (house chores, extracurriculars, vacation, leisure).Trust me, you will search tools and ideas that will support you create decisions- even if you don't consider yourself an overthinker. I am looking forward to having a physical copy of the book. I plan on reading through slowly with both a pencil and my journal in hand. There are three sections composed of four to five chapters. Each chapter concludes with some reflective questions about the chapter topic- excellent for journalling. The above example was from just one chapter- I am having the same a-ha moments with each chapter subject and am excited about the progress I am already seeing in decreasing overthinking (just identifying it is helpful).Thanks to NetGalley and Baker Books for an advance digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Please do not download this game. It has method too a lot of ads. You need to view an ad before starting a android game and even when you wish to exit the android game there's an ad before you quit. It was infuriating to have so a lot of ads in the zone of a few mins. Test some other game. This android game is not worth it.
