    under-act

    in the sentence belwo;

    Over-praparing occurs when you over-think how to obtain a sale, yet under-act due to stress.

    What does "yet under-act" mean here? Does it convey that You over-think (about sales) even when you are selling?



    Thanks

    Re: under-act

    Where is that bizarre sentence from?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: under-act

    Note the correct spelling of "pre​paring".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
