I know what you mean, andrew: I do a ton of research and deliberation before acting, but I don't think it's necessarily a problem. Even if you focus on the internal side of things (learning, thinking, discovering) too much, eventually the corresponding actions and circumstances will creep into your life.
Examples: I heard that Brian Tracy started into business and personal development by reading every relevant book in the public library. Buckminster Fuller, immediately after discovering his life purpose, went for two years without speaking in order to gain the ability to think clearly. And, of course, Jesus spent 40 days (which in Bible-ese just means "a long time") in the desert before he started his ministry.
So I wouldn't get too worried if you're not presently acting on what you've spent a ton of time learning and thinking about it. Once you've thought about it enough (without distraction or contradiction), you'll bring it into your life. (Earl Nightingale: "We become what we think about.")
I hope that's helpful.
