When you think, you try to understand what it will bring you, what it will cost you, and so on. Trying to fully understand everything about what you are thinking, you can come to the option that there are few chances or that it is not clear where this will lead, you can refuse out of fear, for example, that the success is only 50%. When you do not think but act instead of thinking you get experience directly from the event and it can be successful even if the probability of success would be 3 percent. Or, for example, you buy a phone and choose from 2 similar ones, but the difference is insignificant for you and you are trying to make a choice by browsing a bunch of forums, looking at a bunch of reviews, etc. after using the phone, you will not even notice the difference, but at the same time you spent your time to make sure that your choice is the only correct one, and then it may turn out that this difference was not important to you. Or, for example, you can live in the country and enjoy everything that is, but if you think about everything around you, you will come to disappointing conclusions, such as that in any case you will often make mistakes, you will experience pain, disappointment, but besides this, there is a lot of joy and happiness, or for example, you will think about the state that all the thieves and bribe-takers and the state needs us only as consumers, etc., and you will take away your thoughts that living is not fun even though not everything that happens in the country concerns you or you do not you can't influence it
