Well, largely true -- some amount of 'worry' can lead you to prepare for multiple outcomes, and how to best prepare for the outcome you want, or avoid the outcome you fear. But yes, it's very important to keep worry productive, not let it get out of control.

If you see that some aspect of your society is bad, and you want to improve
it, there is only one way to do so: you have to improve people. And in order to
improve people, you begin with only one thing: you can become better yourself.

I saw a similar one....worry is like rocking in a rocking chair...you burn a lot of energy but it gets you no where.

Often we worry about things which never happen. So in a way, it's a pay-off. So we worry more because obviously it works!

Rusty--I am a worrier. Big time. I love this. Thank you so much. I try to remember this but I think the visual is helpful. I'm going to print this and put it in a few places.

Worry isn't the same as being aware of a concern, then doing what you can about it. Worry is 'fretting'. It's useless and a distraction from living your life.

Now I'm going to worry that I am worrying too much.

We were talking about worrying today on our run. The hardest time to stop worrying is when you're trying to fall asleep.

We discussing worries the other day on my ride. Conclusion, if you can't fix it, the universe will handle it. Pretty spot on in my experience.
