Don't worry, be effective.

Living with uncertainty is never fun. I much prefer to know what is going on, or more's the point, what is going to happen.
Right now I'm not clear about either.
And yet that unclarity does not seem to impose itself on the present moment.
When I do not think about it, things just present themselves to be done:
Have breakfast, go to my desk, do some writing, make phone calls.
The great scheme of things does not have a huge bearing on the day to day.
So why the worry?
I think it is my desire to be in control. To know is to be in control. So when I do not know, I feel out of control.
In the same way as 'if you look after the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves', if you look after the moments as they go by, so the future will look after itself.
I can't do anything about the future. I can do something about the day ahead: Be conscientious, do my best, be optimistic. Just thinking that way makes me feel better.
We spend so much time worrying about the things we cannot effect, but which might happen. Much better to stop worrying and do something positive.
There, blog written. Good positive start for the day.
