AN UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCE OF BEING DEEPLY THOUGHTFUL, LOOKING AT ALL THE ANGLES OF A PROBLEM AND ITS SOLUTIONS, IS THAT WE CAN BECOME VERY PESSIMISTIC, NIHILISTIC, HOPELESS, AND DESPONDENT.

WARNING SOMEBODY, IN ADVANCE OF A POTENTIAL ADVERSE EFFECT OR POOR OUTCOME, SHOWS THAT YOU HAVE FORESIGHT, ARE CAREFUL, HAVE WISDOM AND EXPERIENCE, AND ARE THOUGHTFUL. TRYING TO EXPLAIN, AFTER THE FACT, WHY SOMETHING TURNED OUT POORLY SEEMS MORE LIKE YOUR MAKING EXCUSES AND DEFENDING YOURSELF.
