Just Don't Worry


Today I found this glorious diagram on Twitter:


It's so simple, so obvious. We all know it, yet we all seem to constantly forget about this simple truth. If you can't do anything about a problem, then don't care.

Notice one thing about the diagram: when your answer is "I don't know", it also points you to I don't care. That's important. Often, when we're unsure about a problem; its importance, impact, potential resolution, we still try to meddle with it. Which is a senseless way of acting.

Unless you don't know if, and how (can be just a guess), don't deal with a problem. Leave it alone.

Solve anything, not everything.
