We get overwhelmed, not because we don’t know what to do, but because we have recently learned exactly what we need to do and we can’t yet see the best way to do it.
We feel the weight, the sharp edges cutting into us, and it interrupts our decision-making.
So we don’t do anything.
The thing to remember in this situation is that you must give up your own thought cycle and go find someone else’s.
Go to someone with your pile of puzzle pieces, your shards of broken glass, and ask them to arrange the picture for you.
They’re not better than you. They’re not smarter. They just don’t feel the weight. And, because of this, they have no fear of cutting their hands.
