Watch Out: How overextension psychology Is Taking Over and What to Do About It

The good news is that we have learned that it’s extremely easy to overdo things. We over-think something. We over-process. Our mind becomes so cluttered that we find it hard to focus, remember, or get excited about things.
We are easily distracted, and too much time on this planet is spent trying to get our attention and fixate on things that we should be really good at—music, sports, writing, or being in the same room as someone else for an hour or so. People who are in a constant state of over-tension can become as bad as people who have obsessive-compulsive disorder, which is how I see over-extension psychology in action.
It’s not just that people over-extend themselves. It’s that they become so wrapped up in the process of getting their attention and fixating on things that they lose sight of the goal they’re trying to achieve.
Over-extending yourself is generally the result of a lack of focus, so it’s a problem that also affects the mind. It’s the kind of thing that has to be dealt with carefully. In a perfect world, you would focus on what you want to achieve, and your mind would not be constantly over-extended. In reality though, people often fail because they’re too busy focusing on what they want, rather than what they really want.
The problem with ovextending yourself is that it leaves you with little time to work on what you really want. Its like playing poker without a dealer. The more you overthink your goals, the less time you have to actually play. There are simple ways to make the most of your time, but you have to be willing to be a little risk-averse in order to do so.
The problem with over-extending yourself is that you get bored with it. You can end up over working yourself too hard, and not getting any progress. It is a simple solution in theory, but it can be tough to implement. It’s a lot easier to just get up and go play, but that’s not the end of the world.
This is a good example of having to take some risks when you are over working yourself too hard. I recently had a client who was over working himself hard, making him way too much work to get anything done, and then he just gave up. Because he was over working himself too hard, he forgot about his client. So he gave up on getting anything done at all and left a job he was actually quite good at.
This is another example of having to take some risks when you are over working yourself too hard. It’s much easier to just get up and go play. Not only is this one of those situations where you just need to take a little risk, but it’s also the type of situation that can lead to some unexpected outcomes. You could easily get hurt or angry because you just didn’t take the time to get to know your client before you overworked him to the point of exhaustion.
So, to answer the question of whether or not overextension psychology is still relevant, the answer is that of course it is. In the end, however, its hard to say that you have overworked your client to the point of exhaustion. The client in this scenario is likely to be your boss, and that might not be the best way to get the job done.
So, if you don’t take the time to get to know your client, then you might be overworked. But this is not the case. The client in this scenario is likely to be your boss or your friend, or you’re a total idiot because you didn’t do the work.
