Getting overwhelmed......

During the weekend, i have been reviewing my notes from when I first started trading.
There is just too many to review. Also being a perfectionist I feel like I need to thoroughly test every indicator that I have written down.

In my current trading, I barely use any indicators and my method has become a lot more simple. However, I am always looking to see what I can improve on my trading.

I feel like there is always something to test, backtest, review, read, listen, learn, etc regarding the markets and I am wondering if this ever stops? I'm exhausted.....been a student of the market for 8 years now.

Of course I can tune out by simply putting my mind to other things such as playing a video game instead, or going to the gym, but the hard worker in me feels like I should be pushing.......

That being said, I feel like
My trading has gotten a lot better and I've started getting better mentally. I just wanted to say that I feel slightly overwhelmed with the constant research regarding the market. Should I just delete the notes I have written down from years ago or just leave it in some tucked behind folder and never look back.
