Thinking is Bad

Having poor self confidence about a thing or having a complex about not being good enough to do a thing has outward physical/behavioral effects on people. If you think are "no fucking good" at challenging activity Ω and have been told so by others (a bunch), then as soon as you pick up a wrench/brush/keyboard and use your brain to solve sub-challenges for Ω you'll likely question yourself. "Am I doing this right?" "Is this approach stupid?", which causes you to overtly suck at Ω, given time. You'll never get any practice in and you WILL suck at Ω.

That's an oversimplification of the whole milieu, but that's a reasonable description for what I think is sticking in my crawl and creating "challenges" for me where there otherwise aren't (yes, me. ok??!! I'm talking about me of course 🙄).
