I over think even the most mundane tasks. For instance, consider the untied shoelace mid-walk. Should I tie it? Whoa! Let's not rush the delicate decision making process.

First, am I nearly done with the walk? Who am I with? Would pausing to tie slow down the flow of traffic around me? Could I quickly tuck the shoelaces in the shoe? What shirt am I wearing? Will leaning over expose my back? How long are the shoe laces? What condition is the road? Are my feet still snug in the shoe? Did I really use the word 'snug'? Why not 'cozy'?

Oh, life! What an ordeal.
