Don't Think. Just Do It.

Found this excerpt from a journal entry I wrote a few months ago and thought I'd share it here:

There are some people, who just think so much about what they want to do, and, as a result, don't actually end up doing it. I am sure you know at least one person like that. Well, I am, or at least was, until now, one of those people.

When you have goals, when you have deadlines to meet and when there's a lot of workload, you have no time to think about it, you just have to go out there and do it. That's typically the case in school or college or when you have a demanding job. But what about those periods in between- when school has just got over, or you have summer break, or you're just out of college and still figuring out what to do, or you've just quit your job and are looking for a change. In these times, life is completely in your control. No one is there to tell you what to do, you have full freedom to choose how you spend your time. Sounds awesome, doesn't it? Most of us dream of living such a life. But when the time comes, if you're wired like I am, you might just lose yourself, only because of this one word- "THINK".  

You think about what you should be doing, you even google what you should be doing, you start thinking about the right ways of doing it: this happens every day, and every night, you tell yourself that you're going to go ahead and do it tomorrow, but that tomorrow is, again, spent thinking or wasting time or worrying too much. 

Last night, a dear friend made me realize the power of these two words-"DON'T THINK". 
Just go with your gut feeling. And everything will fall into place. Steve Jobs said, 'You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.' 

Keep doing you. Keep finding yourself. Follow your intuition. Stop worrying. Don't think. Just do. And it will all fall into place. Just trust that it will.
