We Needn’t

Assuming we know the outcomes we want to see, there are two ways we can approach any given situation. We can worry about how it will happen. Or we can watch with excited expectation as it unfolds.

Whichever we choose will determine how effective our planning and actions will be.

PS: Or, rather, we can’t and needn’t control anything besides our own thoughts and reactions.
