True to some extent, but I do think it's low risk that someone will take this post at face value and literally not think before doing stupid things. FWIW I do think the quote is crap and an oversimplification of what it's trying to say.

Just to say, rumination is well acknowledged by psychologists. Some people just don’t do it, and others spend a huge chunk of their lives ruminating. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think, it just means recognise when it’s of no benefit, and try to eliminate it.

The idea is to identify when you’re overthinking, and identify when it’s not solving a problem. If you’re thinking about a relatively small mistake you made a few weeks ago, you’re probably overthinking. If you’re deciding what to do with your day or thinking about how to apologise to someone, you’re solving a problem (but there’s a limit before it becomes overthinking or ruminating).
