Every Thursday I share three useful things to help you turn overthinking into expert thinking. Here are this week’s picks:

  1. Did you know that overthinking and deep thinking are the exact same skillset? More on that, plus, how to shift from one to the other
  2. What if you approached your next problem like a teacher? Or an accountant? Or a plumber? 25 Professional Thinking Tools
  3. The Life Changing Impact of Camel-Mode is a podcast episode with a concept that will be a game-changer for parents. But really, it's for anyone whose life circumstances necessitate them powering-down and focusing their energy on a single thing.

Extra thoughts…

I'm away this week, visiting friends in Brighton and going on a work retreat at the weekend. It's the first proper holiday I've taken this year and it feels long overdue.

It's also an opportunity to get back to sending the shorter, more concise version of this newsletter. What do think of that? And what would you like to see more of? Less of? I'd love to know.
