In last week’s excessively long blog post, I postulated that if we (and by we I mean me) are doing too many things and feeling stressed out, we should do fewer things.
I wrote that as a speech for my Toastmasters club, and by the time I gave the speech, I was convinced I was wrong. Sure, it makes perfect sense. But if we’re stressed about doing too much, there are actually two solutions:
1) Do less
2) Don’t be stressed about it.
I’m choosing option 2. I still get to do lots of stuff. I just have to remember that the only things important enough to get stressed out about are writing and my job. And even then, fretting too much is pointless.
