Sometimes, we think too much.
So as to excuse our choices.
Maybe we are fat because we eat too much and exercise too little.
Maybe we are depressed because we drink too much alcohol, a depressant.
Maybe we perform poorly at school or at work because we don’t work hard enough.
Sometimes, the easiest answer is the correct one.
Not to say we should omit nuance and clarification from our playbook.
Rather, sometimes our weight is just math (calories in, calories out), our mental state is based on our consumption and our performance is a natural result of our effort.
Maybe we should think less.
Keep it simple.
And focus on the things that we can control.
The choices that we actually have.
And latch on to the things that will set us free.
