Thank you. I read the post you shared.

I strongly agree this part "sometimes it seems you had written the manual and then you realized it's just a napkin with some quick thoughts noted on it".

I think the problem of thinking about everything at the same time.

This is not good. Some people look carefree.

They don't care about their life, career, future etc. They only think about the moment and I'm not that kind of man.

Let me suggest something different, instead of thinking those folks "don't care about their life, career, future, etc. They only think about the moment..", how about look at it like some people are able to give the current task/problem at hand the focus and will worry later about the future, past, career, etc.

I have a habit of feeling out of my depth, then I think about my mistakes of the past whether career related or not. But I have any to learn to let my mind focus on the present, otherwise I'm not doing myself any favors.

That means it's a learned behavior for me, and probably others. That *doesn't mean it has to come naturally to you. It doesn't for me. And practice only strengthens that muscle.
