Overthinking? Try this iOS Shortcut.

As usual, I found myself overthinking this week about small details and not getting much done on the big stuff.

It’s been happening too often lately, delaying my newsletter and book projects.

But this week, I decided to do something about it.

I built a kind of break-glass-in-case-of-emergency shortcut for whenever I’m stuck in a rut and overthinking.

It’s nothing fancy. I’m sure future iOS updates will make this seem primitive. But it works.

What happens when you press the “Overthinking?” icon?

It opens this note.

It’s come in very handy so far. I wonder how many personal behaviors/habits I could make icons for?

The next one will probably condense all the quotes, photos and links I have on happiness. How nice would it be to open that shortcut every morning instead of some social media app?
