“Don’t let your reflection on the whole sweep of life crush you. Don’t fill your mind with all the bad things that might still happen. Stay focused on the present situation and ask yourself why it’s so unbearable and can’t be survived.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS.
There is always a deadline; the big picture is sometimes too big. As you embark on this week, remember that sometimes taking a step back to look at the big picture will only stress you out. Focus on the work: the very next task, break it down and clear it up.
Do the work, nothing else matters.
