The only way I got out of "paralysis by analysis" was that LIFE forced me to be ACTIVE in order to SURVIVE -- which made me furious at first, then it felt great when I stopped and realized that I had gone for hours and even days at a time without reflecting on myself and things -- I discovered maybe my real spontaneous self underneath the carefully constructed persona I had created back in my youth.
