Noticing non-existent problems

February 11, 2019

Pay attention to how often you try to solve problems that don't exist yet.

You'll notice that you spend tons of time and energy addressing problems that have yet to materialize:

The more you notice that you're solving problems that don't exist yet—or, more likely, that will never exist!—the less energy you'll spend on "solving" them. And the less you'll worry.
