Worry is focused on what we don’t control. If it weren’t, we’d presumably just go ahead and do something about it.
Now, any time wasted on what we don’t control takes away from focusing on what we actually do.
That, then, is why worry serves up a triple whammy. It messes with our minds and productivity, negatively impacts our health, and wastes our time.
There’s a lot of value to be gained by learning to deal with and, ideally, banish worry from our lives. And, the first step to doing so is understanding why its presence should not be tolerated.
