Do more. Think less. You're speaking my language.

This is a thing I literally say to people on the regular. Unfortunately many of them think I'm either being glib or advocating for anti-intellectual action. But to the contrary, I'm encouraging them to get out of their own way, stop over-thinking and just take some sort of action, any action, learn quickly from the mistake and take a new, better informed action.

Feel what you need to feel. No point fighting that, you'll only feed it. You're not wrong to feel bad or overwhelmed. Also, competition is emotionally intense for everyone, even if they manifest it differently. My own experience has manifest in different ways over the years (I've apparently been different people at different times...)

It sounds to me like you're on the right track. Thank you for sharing.
