๐Ÿ“ Introduction

Too much thinking will stand in your way to happiness. As a graduate, it's easy to fall into the trap of overthinking. We often put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make the right decisions and achieve success in our careers. However, this excessive thinking can hinder our ability to experience happiness and fulfilment.

๐Ÿ”น Examples:

Consider the example of choosing a career path. You might spend countless hours researching and analyzing different industries and job opportunities. While it's important to make informed decisions, overthinking can lead to feelings of overwhelm and indecision. In some cases, it might even prevent you from taking action and pursuing your goals.

By constantly analyzing and overthinking, we risk missing out on the present moment and the beauty of life. We should strive to find a balance between our intellect and intuition, learning to trust our internal experience and intuition while still using our analytical skills to make informed decisions.

As Sadhguru highlights through the ancient Greek anecdote, we should also stay humble in our pursuit of knowledge and understanding. We can never know everything, and that's okay. Rather than trying to fit the entire ocean into a small hole, we should focus on experiencing life as it is and finding joy in the journey.

So, as a graduate, it's important to remember that while intellect and analytical thinking are valuable, they should not come at the expense of experiencing happiness and fulfilment. By learning to balance our thinking with our intuition and staying humble in our pursuit of knowledge, we can truly enjoy the journey of life.

๐Ÿ“ Conclusion

In conclusion, as a graduate, it's easy to become lost in overthinking and analysis paralysis. While our intellect and analytical skills are important, they should not come at the expense of experiencing happiness and fulfilment in life. By finding a balance between our thinking and intuition, and learning to stay present in the moment, we can truly enjoy the journey of life. We should also stay humble in our pursuit of knowledge and understanding, recognizing that as humans, we can never know everything. By embracing a more mindful and balanced approach to life, we can find true joy and fulfilment in both our personal and professional pursuits.
