Do you think, Over-thinking about Internet Security would help you to stay secure from external vulnerabilities?
I have a doubt, because showing over protectiveness regarding Internet Security will make you handicapped from experimenting & trying something new. So ultimately it’s stopping you to move ahead.
Which isn’t good from my point of view. Because Internet Security is important but that doesn’t mean you will stop trying/ doing anything new.
You may think I am exaggerating too much, but it’s not an exaggeration. It’s a simple analysis that have been come out after giving a deep thought.
Because once I went through this same situation. I tend to become soo worried that, I couldn’t even stay freely if someone would seen me typing my email password.
Specially if that was in any public place like Cyber Cafe. One thought constantly hammered in my mind, if someone gets access of my account, what will happen.
Though I was following all the security best practices, still I had become restless. Then one day I found out the reason of it. It happens due to overthinking of Security on Internet.
But you know what, it’s a very common problem. Whenever you thought about anything limitless ly, this type of panic comes. it’s simply a specific state of mind.
Which constantly brings different kind of anxieties. So your over consciousness about Internet Security is just an example of that, nothing else.
Now what consequences you may face for this overthinking nature?
#1. You will always get stuck
Whenever you will try to find out something new your insecurity about Internet Security will stop you.
You will start thinking, if this happens that what, if that happens then what etc.
Ultimately when these kind thoughts makes your mind clouded, your normal thought process gets chocked & nothing moves an inch ahead.
#2. You will never be able to experiment
Without experimenting on various things you will never learn new concepts. Because, if this kind of unnecessary feelings about Internet Safety shades your mind, you will never be able to experiment.
So this type of pointless thought will ultimately become a barrier between you & your knowledge gain.
#3. You will not be able to think freely
When your mind is full of fear, you will not be able to think something innovative. Because to innovate, you need to think freely & have to experiment a lot.
Let’s say you are planning to initiate an innovative web based service but your overthinking nature regarding Internet Security & other issues are stopping you in every step.
This can’t be accepted when you are going to do something really big. You have to be fearless.
#4. You will lose the peace of your mind
You have 10 different accounts on 10 different social media platforms, 7 email accounts and many other accounts in different online portals for different purposes.
Now if you think all the time that someone will hack into your account then gradually you will lose the peace of your mind. Follow all the essential security best practices, then leave everything as it is going.
Don’t think too much.
#5. It may lead you to an offline shift
If this insecurity become to harsh then one day it may lead you to the offline road. Do you want this? No na? Then don’t take unnecessary pressure on yourself.
Live freely & work willingly!
