— Jeff Goins
All of your work, from the simplest email reply to the most epic creative work you do, starts from the most basic of resources: your energy. As Goins clearly articulates, worrying about the things outside your control accomplishes nothing except expending a lot of energy that could be better spent elsewhere.
Try taking stock of what you actually have control over in a typical day. You’ll likely be surprised by how little you can really influence. Instead of letting that be a source of stress, try embracing it and narrowing your focus to where you can have the greatest impact.
Luckily, how you approach your work and conduct yourself on a minute-to-minute basis are completely under your control and are the building blocks for a successful career and life.
