People who think too much, by and large, don’t see themselves as having a problem. They see themselves as responding to the pace of their life. They see themselves as doing the thinking that’s necessary. However, if you are plagued by the busy mind, it’s bad for you. Dr George Pransky, Psychologist, USA
With the frenetic pace of modern working life, you may be use to living with a super revved-up mind, one that runs on overdrive from the moment you wake to the moment you rest. That fast-paced constant whirring of your mental gears may have become your norm, who you are and how you roll.
Yet, there are two thinking gears to the mind that we’re all capable of using.
Psychologist Dr George Pransky calls these two different states Active thinking and Passive thinking.
In other words, you’re either pumping the pedals or you’re freewheeling.
