Overthought is a compelling examination of the lives of classical singers Isaiah Bell and Chris Mayell, discussing performance psychology, creativity, entrepreneurship, life balance, self-doubt and the ways we overcome challenges to attain artistic triumph.
We're all familiar with that sickest of grown-up burns: I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed. Well, we're all grown-ups now; how do we cope when life disappoints us? With personal failure we can always turn our focus to trying to do better next time, but what about when things just don't go out way through no fault of our own? Do we get mad? Or do we somehow try to stay Zen? Like, do we literally read half a book called "The Zen Way to the Martial Arts" [Penguin, 1992] and then try to convince everyone that we now practice The Way? Only one thing is certain: Overthought episodes now feature a wicked haiku sign-off.
