Intelligence is overrated by any species that has it, and that is probable by the fact that all intelligent species are outlived by a factor of a hundred to one, if not a thousand to one, by nonintelligent species, who don’t have the brains or perversity to destroy themselves or their environments.

-L.E. Modesitt Jr., The One Eyed Man

Sometimes I think too much. Spend too much time worrying, planning and analyzing instead of doing something. Many chances are lost due to people not taking the chance. Many other chances might get squandered because we did not think things through before. I rather take too many chances and lose some due to I did not think things through before than sit and ponder everything before going into action. I rather fail than miss out. I often fail at this though and I sit and analyze too long, but it feels like I’m getting better at it.
